One of the major causes of sudden hip pain is hip
fracture. As people age
, the possibility of having a fractured hip
increases. This is because falls are more likely and bones become thinner, according to medical observers. Meanwhile, osteoporosis sufferers can get a fracture from simple, daily activities, not just from a big fall or injury.
Other causes of hip pain include tendinitis, strain, osteonecrosis, sciatica, bursitis, arthritis and infection.
