There are different causes for hip complaints: overloading in your daily life or during sports, due to an accident, but also by not moving enough. Osteoarthritis and bursa/tendon irritation have a high prevalence.
The hip joint is a so called ‘ ball and socket joint’. Just like the shoulder joint the hip socket is surrounded by a ring of cartilage, the labrum. It guarantees a vacuum and optimal joint stability. Luxation of the joint is not very common.
Groin pain while standing up, sitting down or crossing your legs could be signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis or labrum pathology.
