The body’s largest joint the hip is a ball-and-socket joint that allows for repetitive motion and seamless movement of its surrounding structures and is cushioned by cartilage that protects the joint from the effects of friction. Activities like running, walking, skipping, and even sitting can be affected when there is discomfort in the hip.
Factors such as past injuries, health conditions such as being overweight, joint stress due to overuse, and even regular wear-and-tear (osteoarthritis) of the joint can cause the protective cartilage to deteriorate and allow painful bone friction to occur. Overuse of connective tissues can cause Iliotibial band syndrome, resulting in the ligament rubbing on the outside of the thigh bone. Experiencing “pinching” tight groin pain?
