There are many causes for hip pain.  They generally can be broken down into primary hip problems, secondary hip problems, and referred pain.  Primary hip pain can be secondary to labral tears, FAI, snapping hip, synovitis, arthritis, loose bodies, or other causes.  Secondary hip problems include instability (connective tissue disorder, dysplasia), bursitis, piriformis syndrome among other causes.  Referred pain can be from the low back, SI joint, muscular imbalance, among other causes.  Treatment of hip pain depends on the primary cause.
