Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.
Medically speaking, an overuse injury happens when a bone, muscle, joint, or ligament is subject to repetitive stress - for example, a golf or tennis swing - without having adequate time to heal or recover. They typically occur when you train incorrectly or perform a move using improper technique.
You can prevent overuse injuries by mixing up your training routine, warming up correctly, practicing proper form using the right equipment and increasing your level of activity slowly over time.
