The hip joint represents the attachment of the femur and acetabulum of the pelvis. Many ligaments, muscles and tendons, bursa, nerves, and blood vessels cross over or attach near the hip region. Hip pain can be a manifestation of dysfunction involving one or more of these structures. 

Pain at the hip can also be misleading in that the pain source can actually be somewhere outside the region completely. Examples include a pinched nerve in the back (lumbar radiculopathy or sciatica) or thigh region (meralgia paresthetica), or referred from the knee or ankle or reflect a degenerated or inflamed structure (tendon, ligament or bursa), to name a few. 

A thorough history of symptoms is very helpful to help determine the likely diagnosis and development of an effective treatment plan for hip pain.
