I have a pinchy type of hip pain that comes and goes depending on if I am walking or sitting.  I am in my 50’s and hope to stay active through at least my 60’s.  Should I be looking into surgery?

Depending on the underlying cause of your hip pain, surgery may or may not be an option.  The most current evidence is not that strong regarding hip pain being alleviated by surgery, however this depends on the underlying cause of the pain.  Sometimes the pain itself can be managed through stretching, correcting movement patterns and underlying muscle imbalances.
