Hip pain is usually caused by arthritis, osteonecrosis, infection or labral pathology and generally localized to the groin and anterior thigh area. Pain is worse with weightbearing, climbing steps, or squatting to seat at a lower level. The pain is associated with antalgic gait and painful, limited range of motion of the hip joint.
Knee and ankle joints pain could be related to arthritis, osteonecrosis, nerve injury or infection as well. Patient needs to seek a specialist's assessment if the pain is consistent, severe or progressively worsening and self-care measures failed to provide with pain relief.
