Four facts about hip and groin pain

Practitioner Information

  1. Hip pain never goes below the knee
    It is usually felt in the groin region, but occasionally around the ischium. It can be referred to the knee.

  2. The labrum is a common cause of hip and groin pain
    This cartilaginous structure runs around the edge of the acetabulum. Tears can be acute but can also have a subacute onset with episodes of severe exacerbation.

  3. Around half of “groin strains” are actually due to intra-articular pathology
    The orthopaedic literature points to labral tears and intra-articular cartilage damage as being common causes.

  4. Many labral tears are secondary to impingement
    Impingement describes the condition whereby the femoral neck abuts or hits on the lip of the acetabulum. This condition is also a significant cause for early osteoarthritis if not treated early.
