Possibly: In the absence of overt trauma, you may have just sprained the ligaments in that area, especially since your pain appears to be mechanical (i.e. Related to motion). Other possible causes include infections and pinched nerves. If symptoms do not resolve within a few weeks, you should see a physician for further evaluation.
