The hip is a strong bone and joint which performs an extremely important role in the body. It secures the top of the femur bone in the upper leg and supports the full weight of the body when standing or moving. Due to the strength of the region, it usually takes a serious accident with high impact on the bone to cause a break in the hip bone. However, older people are more susceptible to this kind of injury due to the more fragile nature of their bones.
A hip injury that results in the fracture of the bone usually results in surgery and chronic and severe pain. Normally, a sustained period of immobility is necessary for recovery due to the body’s inability to bear weight correctly. This immobility can cause problems itself, such as deep vein thrombosis, where a blood clot develops and travels around the body. If your leg has been injured, read more about leg injury claims here.
