Muscle strain occurs when a muscle fibre has been stretched or torn generally due to muscle fatigue, over stretching or a contusion (a fall or a direct blow). This is said to be as painful as a hip fracture and can be an acute pain or chronic depending on if the problem is recurrent. Read more about muscle strains and the treatment options available.
Tendonitis can occur when a muscle is overused and pulls on the tendon that attaches it to the bone. In hips, tendons perform an important role by keeping muscles attached to the thigh bone (femur) as the legs move. Read more about hip tendonitis and the treatment options available.
