Muscle Strain Injuries of the Hip

The hip is where the femur meets the pelvis. Several strong muscles are found here. They handle high loads of stress. They may suffer from overstretching and tearing. This is called a muscle "strain." It's a common injury among athletes who play sports that require sudden starts and stops. Treatment is non-surgical but will require activity modification and physical therapy.
