Hip Injury

London Orthopaedic Specialists offers a specialist service to patients suffering from hip injuries.

 



Hip Injury Conditions

Hip injuries can occur in sport but are less common than knee and shoulder injuries due to the sturdiness of the hip joint. Typical hip injuries sustained during sports are detailed below.

Hip Dislocation

A hip dislocation is when a bone slips out of joint and is a medical emergency requiring urgent attention. Read more about hip dislocation. 

Hip Osteoarthritis

Hip Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that causes a mechanical breakdown of the hip joint. It is the third most likely joint to suffer osteoarthritis after the hand and the knee. It is more common in women than men. Read more about hip osteoarthritis.

Hip Bursitis

Hip Bursitis is when this becomes inflamed, restricting the natural movement of that joint until the friction between the tendons and the bursa causes more irritation resulting in inflammation. Read more about Hip Bursitis.
