Your hip is a very stable & strong joint, generally known as a ball and socket joint consisting of top of the thigh (femur) and the pelvis (ball sits inside a hollow socket in your pelvis). The hip joint can withstand repeated motion and a certain amount of wear & tear. This ball-and-socket joint is the body’s largest joint that fits together in a way that allows for fluid movement. Multiple ligaments support the bones, which provide a lot of stability to the joint. Numerous muscles & tendons form a capsule around the joint to aid in movements which help in moving the joint, supporting your leg and upper body movement.

Several things could be the cause of hip pain. Sometimes recreation or sport can put repetitive strain on the hip and cause pain.
