Hip Stress Fractures

Hip stress fractures are small cracks in the bone, usually occurring in the upper part of the thigh bone. Most fractures are caused by strenuous repetitive activities, such as distance running. A typical symptom is pain the front of the groin when standing or moving. If not treated, the cracks can grow larger over time.

Dr. Bharam usually recommends rest as a first step in treating stress fractures. However, magnetic resonance imaging or other tests can show a more serious condition and the need for surgery.
