Accidents at work can result in any number of injuries. Some of the most common work injuries include back, neck, shoulder, knee injuries and hip injuries. Your hips connect your legs to your body basically, and bear much of the weight of your body. They are essential to your ability to move around and perform your job duties. If your hip is damaged, it can limit your range of motion, cause permanent disability and loss of income now and in the future, and can even require a hip replacement surgery in some severe injuries.
Hip injuries at work can range from fractured or dislocated hips, fractured pelvis and severe pain which prevents you from going back to work right away. Hip injuries will often require physical therapy, possibly surgical repair, or in some cases – full hip replacement surgery.
