Hip fractures

Hip fractures are a serious injury that can occur when the hip bone is broken. If not treated in time, it can lead to serious complications.

Ways to prevent it
  • Exercise regularly to improve strength and balance
  • Ensure your living environment is free of hazards, such as loose rugs or clutter
  • Eat a healthy diet rich in calcium and vitamin D to maintain bone health
  • Use appropriate safety equipment, such as handrails and nonslip mats in the bathroom
What causes Hip fractures?
  • Falls, particularly in older adults
  • Trauma or injury to the hip
  • Osteoporosis, a condition that weakens the bones
Hip fracture Symptoms
  • Severe pain in the hip or groin area
  • Swelling, bruising or tenderness in the hip or groin area
  • Inability to put weight on the affected leg
  • Stiffness or limited mobility in the hip joint
When to see the doctor
  • If you experience sudden, severe hip pain or cannot put weight on your leg
  • If you have a visible deformity in your hip or leg
