One of the most common reasons for hip pain is referred pain from the back. Osteoarthritis of the hip joint is a problem affecting mainly older people and is the most common disease affecting the hip joint, averaging around 25% of women and 15% of men experiencing symptoms over the age of 60. Hip pain can come from your family history. Other factors of the disease could include obesity; the added weight affects your hips tremendously.
Experiencing pain over the side of the hip into the groin, or pain down the front of the thigh and into the knee joint are some of the most common symptoms people observe. The pain is usually worse with activity, especially weight bearing activity such as walking, bending down, twisting, or working on knees.
