When you experience pain in the side of the hip, groin, thigh or knee, you may have difficulty with these accessory motions. Prolonged sitting, injuries, arthritis and disease can affect accessory motions. With every day use, tissues around the hip and knee joints tighten, leading to a gradual loss of motion.This causes a lotof pressure to build up on specificparts of the joints.

This leads to common aches and pains experienced by millions of people. Many people feel that medication will help solve their hip, knee or leg pain.
