No: Trigger point injections work poorly for hip pain and need to be administered by a professional, when done at all.

Possible arthritis: You should be evaluated by an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in the treatment of hip pain. Positional pain such as you describe is often due to an arthritic process. Sitting places the hip in more flexion, and slouchiing, though bad for overall posture, decreases the bendingat the hip. The injury/arthritis is likely in the anterior or front of the hip. Xrays and possibly an mra is warranted.

Many causes: Depends on age and symptoms. Hip joint pain is usually groin pain. Pain with motion or twisting can give concern to things like a labral tear of the hip. There is also something called fai or femoral acetabular impingement. History, physical and a simple x-ray to check for arthritis. Start with nsaid's, physical therapy and re-assess. A guided injection can be considered if no improvement.
