Not all pain is sharp and stabbing in nature as we would expect with nerve type pain such as sciatica. The most common complaint that I see in the office is in fact, hip pain. This pain is typically located in the buttock with extension down the leg. Pain from an arthritic hip joint is generally located in the groin and feels worse with going up stairs. As we get older, narrowing around the spine can cause aching and tiredness in the legs when we walk and stand, which is relieved by sitting. This is a common presentation that I see.
