Hip and Lateral Hip Pain 

The hip is a common site for Osteoarthritis, but can be damaged in younger people also, especially sports persons. The cartilage (labrum) can tear. 

To diagnose a labral injury an MR Arthrogram combined with a Diagnostic Local Anaesthetic block is often required. 

Trochanteric Bursitis (Gluteal Tendinopathy) is a common cause of lateral hip area pain.
