Hip Pain

Why is the pain on the outside of my hip not going away?

Pain on the outside of the hip (“lateral hip pain”) affects roughly 1 in every 500 people annually. In a country of 4.9million people that means almost 10,000 people every year have pain on the outside of their hip. Often pain on the outside of the hip is mistreated and there are many mistakes that both physiotherapists and patients make when trying to alleviate pain on the outside of the hip.
