  • Fractures of the hip joint often present clinically with similar signs and symptoms, regardless of the specific bone involved. Stress fractures to the hip are more commonly seen with overuse-type conditions and are more predominant in adolescents and young adults. Hip fractures are treated initially with a non-weight-bearing phase followed by strengthening the surrounding musculature. Rehabilitation for hip fractures should emphasize reducing loading of the joint and implementing cardiovascular conditioning throughout the treatment process. Unexplained hip pain warrants a complete medical assessment to rule out orthopedic and nonorthopedic pathology.
