Most commonly the result of damaged ligaments, hip instability describes a joint that is loose and may shift out of place without warning. Hip dysplasia is a congenital disorder that results in hip instability. The condition can cause the hip to dislocate. However, many people do not suffer from problems related to hip dysplasia until adulthood.
Once hip instability is recognized, it is important to seek treatment from an experienced orthopedic surgeon. Instability in the hip can result in dislocation, ligament tears, muscle damage and wear of the joint. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds specialize in getting to the root cause of the problem and providing effective treatment for hip conditions at their California practice.
In the first instance, nonsurgical options that draw from sports medicine and orthopedics are recommended. At Silicon Valley Orthopaedics, we are focused on the preservation of the hip joint through treatments and techniques that are minimally invasive, whenever possible.
