Treatments for Hip Injuries and Ailments
Our experienced team of professionals possesses extensive expertise and proficiency in diagnosing, managing, and treating a wide range of hip injuries and ailments. Your hip is a remarkable and intricate joint, a masterpiece of natural engineering composed of bones, muscles, and ligaments working in perfect harmony.
This complex structure provides the hip joint with exceptional stability and flexibility, allowing for a diverse range of movements crucial to everyday activities. From simple actions like walking and sitting to more intricate motions such as running and dancing, the hip plays an integral role in our daily lives.
A hip fracture is a break in the upper part of the thigh bone (femur) near the hip joint. It is often caused by a fall or significant trauma and can result in severe pain, swelling, inability to bear weight, and difficulty with hip movements.
Hip bursitis involves inflammation of the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the hip joint. It can be caused by repetitive motions, trauma, or underlying conditions, leading to pain, tenderness, swelling, and limited hip mobility.
Hip Labral Tears
The hip labrum is a ring of cartilage that lines the rim of the hip socket. Tears in the labrum can occur due to trauma, structural abnormalities, or repetitive motions, resulting in hip pain, clicking or catching sensations, stiffness, and decreased range of motion.
Osteoarthritis of the hip is a degenerative joint condition characterized by the breakdown of cartilage in the hip joint. It can cause pain, stiffness, swelling, and reduced mobility, often worsening over time.
Hip impingement, also known as femoroacetabular impingement, occurs when there is abnormal contact between the ball and socket of the hip joint. It can lead to pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, and increased risk of labral tears or osteoarthritis.
