The human hip joint is not prone to as many issues as smaller, more complex joints like the wrist or knee. A growing number of athletes and active adults, however, are suffering from common hip injuries. Oftentimes, the cause of pain is the result of acute trauma, such as a car accident, fall, or sports related impact. Modern orthopaedic medicine is helping people overcome these common hip injuries and return to an active lifestyle. Learn more about Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine’s Hip Center.
