7 Yoga Stretches That will Help Ease that Hip Pain

The hip joint is one of our most used joints. It is said to withstand a considerable amount of wear and tear and repeated motion. It is a ball and socket joint that is, in fact, also the largest joint in the body. It fits together so well that it gives allowance for fluid movement.

The hip joint is durable, but not indestructible. And with use and age, it can get damaged. The muscles and tendons in the hip area can get overused. Even the bone in the hip can break, causing sciatica or a fracture, or both.

A sore hip can cause pain in the thigh, the groin, inside or outside the hip joint, and in the buttocks. Sometimes, pain from the back or the groin can radiate to the hips.
