Pain in your hip joint
If you experience pain in your hip joint, this may be due to arthritis or tissue damage inside the joint itself. If this is the case, the pain will often feel like it comes from deep inside your groin and/or buttocks. You will typically not be able to trigger the pain by touch or applying pressure. The pain may also radiate from your groin into your knee.

Why does it hurt?
Damage to the hip joint can have many causes. For people over 50, arthritis is a common cause of hip and groin pain. Other common causes are:
Acute injury: The hip joint is damaged due to a sudden and often overwhelming strain.
Excessive strain: The hip joint is subjected to an unaccustomed strain over a longer period of time.
Degeneration and arthritis: Cartilage in your hip joint can wear away over time (arthritis). The cartilage around the hip joint can also become damaged and this may trigger pain when you move your hip.
Pain is the body’s way of telling you to ease the strain on your hip. Two things are critical in treating your pain:
Reduce the activities that led to your injury.
Perform exercises that stimulate the injured area and strengthen the muscles around it.
