A running analysis provided by a coach or trainer can usually reveal some useful information. Most running shoe stores provide an analysis when determining an appropriate shoe, Big Peach Running Co. does a fantastic job of this. These are all very appropriate resources when nothing hurts, however, when a hip, knee, foot, etc. hurts while running; the Physical Therapist is going to become your best resource.
