Hip & Thigh
Information on common injuries treated by Rapid Access Orthopedics
A hip fracture is a partial or complete break of the femur (thigh bone), where it meets your pelvic bone. It’s a serious injury that requires immediate medical attention. In the United States, hip fractures are the most common broken bone that requires hospitalization; about 300,000 Americans are hospitalized for a hip fracture every year. A “broken hip” and a “hip fracture” mean the same thing. Hip fractures in the elderly are most often caused by a fall, usually a seemingly insignificant fall.
Hip bursitis is a common problem that causes pain over the outside of the upper thigh and hip joint.
Hamstring injuries, such as pulls, tears and strains, are common among athletes who play sports that require powerful accelerations, decelerations or lots of running. The hamstring muscles run down the back of the leg from the pelvis to the bones of the lower leg. The three specific muscles that make up the hamstrings are the biceps femoris, semitendinosus and semimembranosus.
Hip abductor and flexor strains occur when the muscle or tendon of the hip is stretched or torn due to overuse during exercise or sports.
