The lower back and hip are two co-dependent structures. A problem in any one of these can cause a dysfunction and pain in the other as well. For instance, if you have chronic back pain, the mobility of your hip may be reduced and the muscles surrounding it can become tense and painful. And similarly, if you have a problem with your hip function, it can adversely affect your lower back region. For the best back pain treatment in India, you may definitely consider approaching us.
As the lower back and hip share a group of muscles, a discomfort in one of the muscles affects the other. So, there are certain conditions when the lower back and hip pain can occur concurrently.
Let’s look broadly into the conditions caused by sharp pain in the lower back and one side of the hip
Due to reasons like muscle spasm, joint dysfunction or never compression, a shooting sharp pain can occur on one side of your lower back and hip. Conditions that cause this pain are:
Piriformis muscle located deep in the buttock can undergo spasm which causes:
- Moderate to severe lower back, hip, and buttock pain
- Referred pain that may extend into the back of the thigh
- Inability to sit for a long time
For instance, when getting out of the bed, the pain could be typically felt on one side and may be worsened by hip movements.
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
Inflammation within the joint that connects your lower spine to your pelvis, the sacroiliac joint, causes:
- A sharp, stabbing pain felt directly over the lower back, hip, and buttock
- Pain that may extend down the back of your thigh, but typically does not extend below the knee
Piriformis syndrome and sacroiliac joint dysfunction symptoms may mimic lumbar radiculopathy, commonly called sciatica.
