Causes of Hip Pain

There are several reasons why your hips might be causing you problems. One of the more common culprits of chronic pain is trochanteric or hip bursitis, which is inflammation of the bursa. According to the Cleveland Clinic, when this bursa, or fluid-filled sac, becomes inflamed, you can experience pain and irritation in your hips.

 

Dr. Bianca Beldini, DPT, MSOM, LAc, SFMA, tells LIVESTRONG.com that a telltale symptom of bursitis is the inability to lie on the affected side, which is due to pain when compressing the bursa against the bed with body weight.
