“Runners' bodies undergo a lot of pounding that can lead to medical conditions that cause hip or thigh pain. Diagnosis can be challenging because more than one condition can be present at a given time.
A patient can help his or her physio make an accurate diagnosis by noting the pattern of symptoms, including exact location of pain, when it occurs, and what makes it go away
Possible conditions include:
- Greater trochanteric bursitis (Hip bursitis)
- Stress fracture in the hip
- Injury to the Hip and Thigh Muscles
- Referring pain from lower back or SI joint.
