How to Tell if You Have a Broken Hip
In this wintery weather, the pavements can be treacherous and it’s easy to slip and fall. It’s really important that the local council takes the time to make sure all the pavements in the area are in top condition, because you do not want to trip up when you are simply going to the corner shop for a pint of milk.
A broken hip can mean a great deal of time in recovery, often in hospital, and you’ll have to take time off work until you get better. You will probably need to have surgery.
Symptoms of a Broken Hip
- Pain after a fall
- Stiffness and bruising in the hip area
- Inability to walk after a fall
A suspected broken hip is so serious that you must not try and make a person who you think has suffered one get up or try and move. Instead, call an ambulance and they will be able to deal with it. There are no home care options for this serious injury.
Of course, these are just some suggestions for dealing with a broken hip. We are not medical experts and if you suspect a broken hip you need to get advice from a professional trained in this field.
