Hip problems can really impact a person’s quality of life. Sometimes the worst part about hip pain is that there could be so many causes to the pain, and proper diagnosis is key to correcting the pain. Some common causes of hip pain include arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, osteonecrosis, lumbar pain (which comes from other areas), snapping hip syndrome, muscle strain, fracture, and stress fracture. You should call a doctor immediately if you are unable to walk due to the extreme pain, if the injured area has extreme swelling, or if the pain persists for more than a couple of days. But if the pain serves as a minor inconvenience to daily routines, you should attempt a natural process to rebuild the hip joints.
