About Hip Injuries

Hip injuries are most common in older populations, but young people are still susceptible to them. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, many athletes are at risk for hip injury as well. By placing consistent and high-impact pressure on their hip joint, the odds of a fracture or other kinds of injury increase considerably.

Common hip injuries include femoral neck fractures—separating the “ball” of the joint from the femur—and intertrochanteric fractures—a break at the hip that can be felt under the skin (The Mayo Foundation). Soft tissue damage can also cause hip injuries—labral tears damage the joint’s cartilage from repetitive overuse, and dislocation results from damaged ligaments (The Arthritis Foundation).
