In brief: Depends on age...

If you were talking about the over 65 crowd - i'd say it was arthritis.
If you're looking at a younger population, say 20s, 30s, 40s then we tend to see more exercise/related injuries.

In brief: Pinched nerve

A nerve that is under pressure in the back will cause both hip and knee pain.
Some types of arthritis can involve both joints but is less common.
