Why do I have hip pain?
There are several causes of hip pain. To help you get a better idea of why your hip hurts, let’s take a look at how it works. Your hip is actually a ball-and-socket joint where the femur (thighbone) meets the pelvis. The top of the femur has a rounded head that fits into a cup-like socket in the pelvis called the acetabulum. When it’s working smoothly, you don’t think about the mechanics of your hip joint. When something’s wrong, it can feel so debilitating that it becomes the only thing on your mind.
