- Repetitive activities from overuse or overwork can cause conditions such as Bursitis, Tendinitis or a muscle or tendon strain.
- Usually caused by athletes who engage in repetitive twisting movements, hip labral tears can cause a great deal of hip pain.

- When your blood flow slows, pain can occur due to a condition called osteonecrosis.
