Hip Pain

Did you know that hip pain can actually be coming from the low back? How to know if it is…..

Often times my patients will report that they have hip pain when in reality their problem stems from the lower back. Hip joint pain is almost always centered on the groin with some going into the front of the thigh and less often the buttocks. Low back issues on the other hand can cause pain in the butt and the outside of the hip, what most people refer to as the hip. For your doctor this distinction is important because it dictates the treatment plan.
