Hip Pain

Hip pain is a common complaint and can have a variety of causes. Treatment of hip pain must be directed at the specific cause of your problem. Hip pain symptoms can vary from having difficulty lying on your side, putting shoes and socks on, and limiting your ability to walk. Hip pain does not have to be limited to the hip joint, but can radiate in the thigh, groin and buttock.
