What Causes Hip Pain
About Hip Pain
Torso of the human body is joined with the legs by a joint called the hip joint. Any pain within the joint or around it is referred to as hip pain. This is a common problem and sometimes it does not call for a person to seek medication. However, this pain may be as a result of one or more complications within the human body which may require doctor’s attention. The head of the femur (thigh bone) fits into a socket forming the hip joint. This socket is referred to as acetabulum and is made up of pelvic bones. Many hip pain causes arise from the hip joint itself but the other structures surrounding the joint may also be the source of the pain.
