back and hip pain 150x150 Gluteus, Hip, and Neck PainCaller: I have been having this pain in my hip right where my gluteus and my hip are, and it is really sharp, hot, piercing pain, and I have been told that it is related to a pain I get in the nape of my neck, can you explain to me why I am having this type of pain?

Dr. Darrow: In both places you mean?

Caller: That is what I have been told from one of my doctors.

Dr. Darrow: Well the reason that it could be related is that the spine, if you hurt one end of it, the other end can have a reaction from it. So very often we find people have neck pain and sometimes the neck pain will go away and reappear into the lower back, or vice versa, so it is hard to know without (examining) you.

You can have hypolordosis or loss of lordosis, (lordosis meaning the curve) and if it effects the upper back or the lower back, that means it can affect the neck also.

The fact that you are calling this a piercing type pain is a good thing because it is localized, meaning that it is probably not from a pinched nerve it is probably just mechanical back pain which can be fixed by Prolotherapy.

The pain in the hip near the gluteus, that really is where the pelvis attaches to the vertebrae in the back, it is not really the hip, people call it the hip, hip joint pain is usually felt in the front of the body, in the groin area.
