Causes of Hip Pain
These are some of the conditions that commonly cause hip pain:
Hip fractures. With age, the bones can become weak and brittle. Weakened bones are more likely to break during a fall.
Tendinitis. It's usually caused by repetitive stress from overuse.
Muscle or tendon strain. Repeated activities can put strain on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support the hips. When they become inflamed due to overuse, they can cause pain and prevent the hip from working normally.
Avascular necrosis .This condition happens when blood flow to the hip bone slows and the bone tissue dies. Although it can affect other bones, avascular necrosis most often happens in the hip. It can be caused by a hip fracture or dislocation, or from the long-term use of high-dose steroids (such as prednisone), among other causes.
