Sport and exercises are great for everything, but sometimes they can also come with pain and physical conditions. Even some of the strongest areas of the body can be injured or damaged when person is not properly prepared.
One of the most exposed joint at risk is hip. It is one of the strongest and most stable parts of the body. We call it “ball-and-socket” joint” and this is the joint between the femur and acetabulum of the pelvis and its primary function is to support the weight of the body in both static (e.g. standing) and dynamic (e.g. walking or running) postures. High hip mobility requires cushioning by cartilage every time it moves. Over time, the cartilage may be damaged, especially when the hip is overused and the person puts a lot of strain on it. Also, the hip injury can be a result of contact sport or falling on the side.
A number of different conditions can cause hip pain in athletes. One of the most popular is osteoarthritis, also known as “wear and tear” arthritis. Apart from that, active people may suffer from muscle injuries (strain or sprain), soft tissue inflammation (tendonitis, bursitis), cartilage damage, bones fractures and contusions.
Usually, the treatment involves medication and hip protection. The best product for protect the hip while playing sport is our universal sport hip brace.
