Once your doctor analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, they will perform a physical examination to assess the position of the hip and leg, but will also order X-rays, computed tomography, MRI, or bone scan.
Every hip fracture requires a surgery that will depend on the severity, age, and pre-existing diseases, the most common being:
- Fix with plate and screws.
- Partial hip replacement.
- Total hip replacement.
After surgery, you will require physical therapy sessions to perform range-of-motion and strengthening exercises, as well as the support of an occupational therapist to teach you techniques to carry out your daily routines until you regain movement, strength, and can be independent again.
