Hip Pain

What causes hip pain?

Hip pain may affect the joint itself, or you may feel it in your groin or thigh. The team at 43rd St. Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation treats many problems that cause hip pain, including:


Tendonitis, which is tendon inflammation, is the most common cause of acute hip pain. Tendonitis can be an overuse injury from too much exercise, or it can result from a muscle imbalance due to sitting with your legs crossed.

Pinched nerves 

Anything that puts pressure on a nerve in your lumbar spine can lead to hip pain or lower back pain. Common causes for pinched nerves include herniated or bulging discs and spinal stenosis. Sciatica is a type of radiating hip pain that results from a pinched nerve.


Many types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, can affect the hip joint. A traumatic injury, such as a hip fracture, may increase your risk of osteoarthritis. Arthritis is the leading cause of chronic, or long-term, hip pain.

Other joint problems

Sometimes hip pain results from a separate issue, such as knee pain or heel pain from plantar fasciitis. Knee or heel pain can cause you to walk with an altered gait, which may, in turn, cause hip pain.

How is hip pain diagnosed?

The team at 43rd St. Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation provides a whole-person approach to treatment, meaning they address the underlying cause of hip pain and not just the symptoms. 

To determine the best course of treatment, they thoroughly evaluate your overall health and perform a physical exam. They may also take imaging tests, such as an on-site X-ray or ultrasound, to help them diagnose the cause of your hip pain. Then, they develop an individualized treatment plan.
