The causes of severe hip pain most often include trauma or damage to the joint of the hip. When the cartilage inside the joint of the hip is damaged, severe hip pain can result. Causes of severe hip pain can also include pain that radiates to the hip from the back or spine. Often, an injury to the back or spine can cause the hip joint to loose its alignment and will create hip pain. Hip pain is sometimes alleviated by medication, but most often is repaired surgically.
