SPORTS INJURY & TREATMENT

HIP

It is the joint that connects the leg to the upper part of the body. Hip injuries are most common in runners, bikers, soccer and football players. Some of the problems include:

  • IMPINGEMENT:

    It refers to compression of the soft tissues around the hip due to abnormal wear between the ball-and-socket of the hip joint. During any hip movement, the friction increases and patients complain of groin pain and stiffness in their groin.

  • LABRAL TEAR:

    Labrum is a soft tissue that surrounds the hip socket. It can tear due to any injury or degeneration, and can lead to labral tear causing pain, stiffness and disabling of the hip joint. This injury is common in athletes who perform repeated hip flexion such as runners, hockey players, soccer and football players.

TREATMENT

Through a minimally invasive procedure, three or four keyholes are made in the hip joint to visualize and to debride the abnormally grown bone and soft tissues.

Through a minimally invasive procedure, three or four keyholes are made in the hip joint to repair the labrum using anchors (it is a screw loaded with threads to stitch the labrum)
