What is lateral hip pain?

Lateral hip pain is pain that occurs on the outside of the hip. While runners are especially prone to lateral hip pain, so are other groups of people, such as women over 40 and men and women who have had a total hip replacement. It can occur from a variety of causes, which includes degeneration (wear and tear) of the hip, various injuries, according to “Pain in Lateral Hip During Running,” iliotibial (IT) band syndrome or inflammation from Trochanteric bursitis. Activities that can contribute to the development and potential worsening of lateral hip pain includes frequently standing in one place with one hip pushed out to the side, poor posture and sleeping on the side that is already painful.
