The hip is a structurally sound joint that is surrounded and supported by several large structures, including the hamstrings, quadriceps, gluteal muscles, and lower back musculature. This stable structure is not easily injured; however, sport activities, falls, and overuse may lead to an injury. There are also certain diseases (i.e. arthritis) that may lead to hip injuries or further problems and pain in the hip- especially as one ages.
Hip injuries are typically treated utilizing physical therapy.
