Treating a Hip Fracture
A hip fracture is a common condition and without the proper care can lead to problems in mobility and overall quality of life. Hip fractures can happen be traumatic from a fall or a stress fracture, and it is important to have a comprehensive plan for treatment for both.
The Most Common Form of Joint Arthritis
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of hip arthritis. It is a slow deterioration of the cartilage that covers your hip’s ball and socket bone.
A dislocated hip occurs when your femur is displaced from your hip socket. This condition is usually brought about as a result of great force which would normally cause a traumatic injury. However, if you have already gone through a hip replacement procedure, something as simple as bending down to tie your shoe could dislocate your hip.
