Health Tip: Know the Signs of a Hip Strain

(HealthDay News) -- The muscles supporting the hip may become strained from overuse or an injury. You're more likely than the average person to develop a strained hip if you've already had a similar injury, if you don't warm up before exercise, or if you overdo it and injure your hip.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says warning signs of a hip strain may include:

  • Pain in the hip area, which is the most common symptom.

  • Pain during use of the hip muscles.

  • Swelling, a symptom of a more severe strain.

  • Weakness in the hip muscle.
