Running Biomechanics & Hip Injuries in Athletes

Engaging in everyday training and physical activities on a regular basis is fundamental for athletes as doing so helps increase their performance potential when participating in their specific sport or exercise. However, with constant and repetitive movements, the human body can eventually experience degenerative changes which can result in damage or injury to the structures of the body as well as develop or aggravate a previously existing condition. In addition, an accident during the practice of the athlete’s specific sport or physical activity can result in various types of sports injuries.

While some forms of sports injuries are more commonly diagnosed in athletes, such as ankle sprains or strains, occasionally, individuals may be exposed to a unique circumstance where a rare type of injury can occur. Hip injuries are considered infrequent sports injuries, primarily because the hip is so well supported by its surrounding structures and tissues. When they do occur though, an athletes performance can be greatly affected.

Hip injuries are often uncommon types of injuries among athletes, as these don’t generally occur immediately, rather, the accumulated hours of training may progressively cause a series of worsening symptoms.

Approximately 3.3 percent to 11.5 percent of long distance runners suffer sports injuries as a result of overtraining, where hip complications are believed to contribute for up to 14 percent of all athletic issues. In fact, hip injuries make up nearly a sixth of all injuries sustained by athletes. Moreover, because of the complexity of the hip and its surrounding structures, about 30 percent of hip injuries are undiagnosed. Without correcting the initial problem, recurrence or ongoing impairment may often follow.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Maintaining the proper health of the spine is essential as the hip and its surrounding structures are necessary for almost all types of sports. When seeking care for these type of sports injuries, chiropractic care is a recommended form of alternative care which treats patients without surgical interventions. Furthermore, chiropractic treatment can help restore the individual’s original health. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
