STIFF HIPS: Back pain

You may over­com­pen­sate for stiff­ness by ro­tat­ing from your lower back in­stead of your hips, says Joe Eis­chen of the Mayo Clinic. This can lead to back pain.

IM­PINGE­MENT: Torn ACL

Peo­ple with lim­ited in­ter­nal hip ro­ta­tion may have a greater risk of tear­ing an an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment. When you have trou­ble twist­ing from your hips, your legs take some of the work.

HIP PAIN: Achy feet

Hip pain can make you walk funny, which in­flames the tis­sue that sup­ports your soles. Treat­ing the hip prob­lem of­ten helps the foot prob­lem, says Dr Domb.

LABRUM TEAR: Groin pain

Im­pinge­ment and labrum tears can show up as groin pain, es­pe­cially if your work­outs are in­tense or re­quire cut­ting or jump­ing, as with bas­ket­ball and ten­nis.
