Hip Pain and Thigh Pain
About Hip Pain and Thigh Pain
Hip pain is typically felt in 3 places, the groin, outer hip, or deep buttock. Depending on where the pain is focused corresponds to the dysfunction around that area. The hip joint is incredible as it moves through a large range of motion while bearing the weight of the body and providing stability.
Most hip pain stems from limited motion of the hip, causing abnormal pressures to different muscles, tendons, or ligaments around the area. With acute pain, it can be felt deep in the groin or outer hip. However, with more severe irritation, radiating pain can even be felt into the thigh or knee.
Having flexible hip joints with strong muscular support is key to a healthy back. When the hips don’t move as they should, the regular forces of walking, bending, and squatting are transferred to the spine instead of the hips.
