hip injuries

 

 

Whether you are dancing, climbing stairs, simply getting out of bed, or running, your hip joint is extremely important for overall function.  The hip is a ball and socket joint that allows for wide range of motion, thereby opening itself to a variety of injuries.

As a complex collection of cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and muscles, the hip endures the shocks of daily living but is also vulnerable to athletic injury.

 

Common hip conditions include:

  • Bursitis

  • Tendonitis

  • Arthritis

  • Sprains and strains

  • Hip pointers

  • Piriformis syndrome

  • Labral tears

  • Fractures

If you have numbness, tingling, night pain, or progressive weakness, your PACT physical therapist can begin a plan of care to get you better, faster.
