People often cannot differentiate between hip and back pain because the symptoms of one often mimic those of the other. For instance, “sciatica,” which often results from herniated disc compressing a portion of a spinal nerve, can cause pain that runs from the back through the hips and down one (or both) legs. Pain resulting from hip arthritis is usually experienced in the buttocks, groin, and sometimes in the front of the thigh. While a person in pain may not have experience to tell exactly where the pain is coming from , a detailed description of the symptoms can usually help a chiropractor determine whether the pain has its source at the hip or the spine.
For some people, the pain from sciatica can be severe and debilitating. For others, the sciatica pain might be infrequent and irritating, but has the potential to get worse.
