The hip is a very stable joint that carries 8 times the body's weight during activities such as jogging, and potentially greater force during vigorous sports. The hip is well adapted to transfer these forces. Despite this, the hip is prone to many injuries during sports activities.

Injury can result from trauma such as a fall or collision. It may also occur from overuse, excessive strain or repetitive trauma. Hip injuries may be specific to different ages. While adolescents are more prone to injuries related to the growth plate and the presence of structural deformities, wear-and-tear of the joint cartilage is usually seen in aged athletes.

In general, there are two major factors that can increase your risk for sports injuries to the hip. These include inadequate conditioning in the form of warmup before the sport and increasing the training program too quickly.
