The hip is a ball-and-socket joint which incorporates a ball at the top of the thigh bone that fits inside the pelvis. When the bone and/or cartilage of the hip become diseased or damaged, the joint can stiffen and become very painful. Hip injury or osteoarthritis and osteoporosis are common in older adults, while athletes may suffer from hip strain or bursitis. Treatment may involve surgery, and it may take six months before athletes can return to practicing their sport. However, with arthroscopic surgical techniques you can get back on track much faster. Rehab exercises may be prescribed to speed up recovery.
COMMON HIP CONDITIONS AND TREATMENTS:
- Total Hip Replacement.
- Hip Bursitis.
- Avascular Necrosis of the Hip.
