Hip Pain

There are a variety of factors that can result in hip pain.  The hip is a “ball and socket joint” that attaches the leg to the torso of the body.  It’s a very durable joint that is designed for stability.  However, even the hip can become damaged due to injury, overuse, disease, or something as simple as aging.  The pain itself may arise from the joint or from the numerous structures that surround the hip.
