How hip pain can affect you?
As your hips play such a big part in keeping you mobile, hip pain can make all kinds of daily activities painful, or even impossible. Just getting out of bed, going for a walk or climbing stairs may hurt, not to mention going for a run. In severe cases, you may not be able to move or put any weight on the affected hip or leg, in which case you should see your doctor.
DID YOU KNOW? Nerves and blood vessels run through the hip, including the sciatic nerve at the back of the hip and the femoral nerve at the front.
