The hip is a ball-and-socket joint, meaning that the rounded ball of the hip bone rests in the socket of the pelvis. The hip is the largest ball-and-socket joint in the body. In human anatomy, the hip flexors are a group of skeletal muscles that act to flex the femur onto the lumbopelvic complex and pull the knee upward.
Hip injuries are common among people of all ages. Many young people sustain hip injuries while playing sports. Senior citizens are especially prone to hip injuries from falls because bone density and joint elasticity both decrease as people age. Overweight or obese people are more prone to hip injuries as well because excess weight puts more pressure on the hip.
Hip injuries are also one of the most common injuries that can result from an accident involving a car, truck or other types of vehicles. Hip injuries from accidents can be among the most difficult from which to recover.
As victims get older, the pain and mobility issues from a hip injury get worse. This is why it is especially important that you get adequate compensation for a hip injury after you have been in an automobile accident.
