What Is Hip Pain?
Hip pain involves any pain in or around the hip joint, but is not always felt directly over the hip. Instead, you may feel it in the middle of your thigh or in your groin. Similarly, pain you
feel in the hip may actually reflect a problem in your back, rather than your hip itself.
