Impingement​

The hip, similar in nature to the shoulder, provides a base of support for the body above and mobility of the foot below. This hip must be able to support the body in weight-bearing activities, such as standing, walking, kneeling, squatting, jumping, and running. The hips together provide a complex and dynamic nature to the body structure. For example, in walking, one side must bear the entire weight of the trunk and provide balance, while the opposite hip swings the leg forward to safely take a step. If one side is injured or affected by pain, both sides can experience negative effects. If you or someone you know is suffering from hip pain or injury, give the team at South Texas Bone & Joint a call. Making, Your Care. Our Priority.
