Possible Causes of Hip Pain
A ball-shaped femoral head and a socket-shaped acetabulum comprises your hip joint. In between the femoral head and acetabulum is a thick layer of cartilage and synovial fluid, which allows your joint to move smoothly. Individuals often experience hip pain when this buffer begins to break down, which can be caused by:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
