Why do I feel hip and groin pain at the same time?

Hip and Groin Pain

The broad reason people feel hip and groin pain at the same time is simple: These two structures are close together and connected by nerves. This makes it easy for pain to radiate from the hip to the groin and vice versa. 

It’s also common for adults to feel these two types of pain together. In fact, one study found that 47% of its participants had pain in both their hip and groin. One person who can help you learn the exact cause of your pain is a physical therapist. Additionally, these specialists can help you find effective treatment for your hip and groin pain.
