Health Tip: Know the Signs of a Hip Strain10/17/13
(HealthDay News) -- The muscles supporting the hip may become
strained from overuse or an injury. You're more likely than the
average person to develop a strained hip if you've already had a
similar injury, if you don't warm up before exercise, or if you
overdo it and injure your hip.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says warning signs
of a hip strain may include:
- Pain in the hip area, which is the most common symptom.
- Pain during use of the hip muscles.
- Swelling, a symptom of a more severe strain.
- Weakness in the hip muscle.
