How to Treat quiz: Non-arthritic hip pain in adults

Relevance to General Practice

Hip pain is a common presenting complaint in general practice. This usually refers to pain located in the groin but may also include the lateral thigh, buttock and lower back. Overall, particularly in older age groups, the most common cause of hip pain is osteoarthritis. However, there are numerous other conditions that should also be considered. Currently, there is no Australian data regarding the incidence of hip pain but European studies estimate a prevalence of up to 20% in patients over 65. years of age. The same studies estimate hip pain to have roughly half the prevalence of knee pain.
