Signs of a Hip Fracture

A hip fracture is a painful crack in the bone that can make it difficult or impossible to walk on your affected side. In some cases, the pain is so obvious and intense that you know to seek medical help immediately. Sometimes, though, a tiny fracture could cause only mild discomfort or a dull pain that could easily be mistaken for a less serious issue. If you are experiencing any pain through your hip or a limited range of motion, you may have a hip fracture.

Hip Fracture Symptoms

A fracture should be promptly treated by a medical professional to avoid making it worse. Your doctor can perform X-rays and other scans to determine the extent of the fracture and what should be done to treat it. Some symptoms that may indicate that you have a fractured hip include:

  • Inability to move your leg
  • Pain when you put weight on the leg on the affected side
  • Bruising and swelling around your hip
  • Sharp pain through the hip

If you have noticed any of these symptoms, or persistence or worsening of minor symptoms, consider seeing your doctor as soon as possible. You may have a fractured hip. Those that have hip implants may have a defective implant or poor placement that has caused the bone around it to fracture. Our Depuy hip replacement defect lawyers can help those who have had trouble with their Depuy hip implants. You may be entitled to compensation for your defect-related costs and pain and suffering.
