What is a hip fracture?
A hip fracture is more than a broken bone. If you are older, breaking your hip can mean a major change in your life. You will probably need surgery, and it can take as long as a year to recover. But activity and physical therapy can help you get your strength and mobility back.
Most people break their hip near the upper part of the thighbone (femur). It usually happens near where the thighbone fits into the hip joint.
