Hip pain can be caused by a variety of issues, from adhesion to hip degeneration/osteoarthritis. The doctor’s exam will guide him to the potential pain generator, and then the surrounding muscules will be treated to help reduce joint pain.
Muscle adhesion is the most common source of pain and stiffness and the most underdiagnosed.
