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.

Hip Replacement vs Hip Resurfacing

by Stephanie Meadows

This is a painful condition that causes severe chronic pain, stiffness in the joint, and limited mobility, which inhibits people from going about their daily tasks and activities. The good news, is that surgical procedures such as hip replacement or resurfacing help man people restore function and mobility, reducing the pain caused by bone on bone friction in the hip.

Proper Sports Techniques to Prevent Hip Pain

Proper Sports Techniques to Prevent Hip Pain

by Stephanie Meadows
The hip joint is one the large joints of the body and serves in movement as the thigh moves forward and backward. The hip joint also rotates when sitting and with changes of direction when walking. The hip joint is where the ball of the thigh bone (femur) joins the pelvis at a socket called the acetabulum. There is cartilage covering both the bone of the femur and the acetabulum of the pelvis in the hip joint. A joint lining tissue, called synovium, surrounds the hip joint. The synovium tissue produces fluid that lubricates the joint and provides nutrients to the cartilage of the joint.
