Hip

  • Hip arthritis: is most commonly in the form of osteoarthritis from general wear and tear on the hip joint over time. It can cause aching pain, stiffness, and limit your ability to walk.

  • Hip Bursitis: is the inflammation of a bursa sac between the hip bone and muscles. It can be caused by an injury or repeated pressure or movement.

  • Hip Fracture: is common in older patients or if you are not getting enough vitamins, are not active, or take certain medications. Fracturing your hip may happen after a fall, or if you have osteoporosis you could break your hip without falling.

  • Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip: is a condition in which the top of the thighbone doesn’t fit securely into the hip socket causing the thigh to move around more than normal, or causing the joint to part way or completely dislocate.

  • Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI): is when the bones in the hip have an irregular shape and do not fit together perfectly. This can cause the bones to rub against each other and result in pain and limited activity.

  • Hamstring injury: can be a pull or a tear of one of the hamstring muscles that runs down the back of the thigh.
