Hip Injuries

We discuss some of the most common Hip injuries we treat and how we can help. Hip injuries from femur fractures to thigh muscle tears. Muscles, tendons, nerves or joints, can be the cause of lower back pain, so we’ll look at the different types of structures in the hip and the injuries that comes with it.

Remember that most injuries don’t happen in isolation, in most cases there are two to three structures that’s a problem. Its common to find more than one injury for example: With a femur fracture we find that 3 ligaments are sprained and usually 2 groups of muscle are injured, as well as 6 tendon injuries that accompany it.

Our main concern will be to determine which one is the worst or the main problem, and focus our attention there. A general rule of thumb is a hierarchy of importance:

  1. Nerve
  2. Bone
  3. Joint
  4. Disc
  5. Ligament
  6. Tendon
  7. Muscle
