Acute hip pain following injury more commonly originates locally in and around the hip joint rather than being referred from the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joints, groin, or pelvis. Clinical assessment can usually localize the pain source to the hip region. Thereafter, imaging helps define the precise cause of acute hip pain. This review discusses the imaging of common causes of acute hip pain following injury in adults, addressing injuries in and around the hip joint. Pediatric and postsurgical causes of hip pain following injury are not discussed.
