In the past, just about any hip pain symptom was attributed to a "muscle strain" type of injury. While this is a common cause of hip pain in athletes, we are learning more and more about other causes of hip pain that can sideline a player from the action.
Follow these five helpful tips from foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeons to keep your feet healthy and free of pain:
Targeted exercises and stretches can alleviate tight hips, a problem that occurs when tension builds up in the hip flexors and other muscles around the hips.
A stress fracture is a type of bone break or crack in the bone. Stress fractures occur when a small or moderate amount of force is applied to a bone repeatedly and over time.
The warmer weather, longer days, and increased level of activity during the summer months can lead to painful foot conditions if you’re not wearing the proper shoes. Keep your feet pain free while you enjoy fun in the sun with tips from the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) and foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeons.
