Commonly agreed to be a serious injury, if not the most serious, a hip injury is no small matter to simply wave off. If left unaddressed in the beginning, a hip injury can lead to a wide range of lasting health issues that are much harder to solve. Individuals who participate in high contact sports such as rugby and football are at a higher risk for hip injuries as opposed to individuals participating in other sports.
