Hip pain and problems range from sciatica to osteoarthritis and hip fractures.
The knee is a complex joint of bones held together with tendons, ligaments, and muscles—any of which can be damaged through everyday activities or high-impact sports.
Did You Know?
Having a joint replacement doesn't mean you can't be active. In fact, you should be active, says the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Check with your health care provider before choosing an activity, because some forms of exercise may be better for your replacement joint than others.
