Most common causes of hip and tailbone pains?

Age matters. The cause of hip pain can be related to age. In younger patients, pain can be related to bursitis, muscle strain, or even a hip cartilage tear. The older age group can have all of the above, but groin pain or upper thigh pain may represent early arthritis. Suggest stretching, nsad's, and light activity. If still painful, check with your md and get an xray.
