Hip pain can come from the hip or be referred from the lower back, of which both are some of the most common conditions treated by our Osteopaths and Physiotherapists. Patients often refer to their hip as the region between the mid thigh and lower back. The hip joint itself is the specific connection between the thigh bone (femur) and the pelvic bone. The pelvic bone (ilium) then joins to the lower back via the sacrum, making the Sacroiliac joint.
Pain in the hip can be caused by sports injuries, extended periods of sitting at a desk or even activities like driving a car and can be referred pain felt in the hip but originating in the lower back or sacroiliac joint.
