Hip and Groin Pain

The hip joint is a ball and socket joint between the head of the femur and the pelvis, which allows for movement in all directions. Hip pain can therefore be very debilitating when it occurs. Hip pain can be a result of overload to the hip joint, or can be due to an injury that has occurred. There are many different potential sources of pain in the hip such as the joint and cartilage in the joint, the muscles surrounding the joint or even referred pain from the lower back This means a thorough assessment is crucial in order to determine the exact cause of pain.


Common injuries or causes of hip pain include:

  • Arthritis

  • Bursitis

  • Groin pain or strain

  • Hip flexor pain 

  • Gluteal tendinopathy 

  • Joint stiffness
