Hip joint pain can also be age-related because our hips degenerate and show the effects of daily wear-and-tear over time.
You may also be suffering from sacroiliac joint pain, which is pain in the joint that connects the hip with the sacrum. Sacroiliac joint pain causes include traumatic impact, poor biomechanics, inflammation or hormonal changes in the body, for example when pregnant.
Many people who describe sciatica symptoms in their hip are possibly experiencing pain that is referred from the sciatic nerve. It is very easy to be confused between sciatica and hip pain which is why it is important to see a chiropractor who can diagnose the correct source of the pain and address it quickly and effectively.
