Recovering from Hip Dislocation

Recovering from Hip Dislocation

by Stephanie Meadows
A hip dislocation is a serious and painful injury. It is usually the result of some very strong trauma, as in the case of an automobile accident or a fall. When the smooth end of the femur, or thigh bone, is pushed out of the socket formed by the pelvis, the hip joint is said to be dislocated. Emergency treatment is necessary for this injury, and a healthy recovery is vital towards returning mobility and preventing chronic pain.

Our hips are also one of our most flexible joints, which allows a greater range of motion than all other joints in the body, except for the shoulder.
