Hip flexor injury: Pain from injury to the iliopsoas muscle is usually felt in the front part of the hip, depending on the extent of the injury.

Yes: Injury to your hip flexor a can alter your gait and cause pain down the kinetic chain and into your upper thigh and knee. I recommend stretching, mice, and rest. If no other health problems Motrin or aleeve is also appropriate.
