Hip and Thigh Injuries
Your hips-the joints where your thigh bone meets your pelvis bone-are very stable. It takes great force to seriously damage a healthy hip.
A handful of overuse and sports injuries are associated with the hip; some male adolescents may experience growth-related hip problems, and some women may also face pelvis- or hip-related difficulties during pregnancy. However, the majority of hip problems are associated with aging, disease, and fractures in the elderly. Elderly people are subject to the most serious problems: life- threatening hip fractures that are often due to osteoporosis, the disease that causes brittle bones.
