The ball-and-socket hip joint requires both strength and flexibility to allow us to walk, run, jump and bend properly. While a healthy hip typically takes quite a bit of force to become seriously injured, overuse injuries and degenerative disease are quite common for all ages. The orthopaedic hip specialists at Capital Orthopaedics provide a range of nonsurgical and surgical procedures – such as minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery and hip replacement – to treat hip pain.
