Hip Pain

What causes hip pain?

Hip pain can be caused by a number of factors which are quite varied and dependent on the individual. Things that can influence or trigger hip pain include hip, core, lower limb and foot weakness, prolonged sitting or side-lying, crossing legs, pregnancy, carrying children or heavy items on your hip/side of your body and poor footwear choices.
