Trauma is a leading cause of hip injury in older populations and athletes (in collision sports).
Repetitive use and skeletal development anomalies are the leading cause of hip pain in younger, athletic patients. Running, ice hockey and artistic sports (dancing, gymnastics) have a high incidence of hip injuries.
Over time, our bodies age. This includes the bones, muscles and tendons of the hip. Inflammation from “wear and tear” of the joints results in arthritis, whereas degeneration of the muscles and tendons results in tears that do not heal without surgical repair.
