Leg and Hip Injuries
A thigh fracture can be very serious due to the scale of the bone involved, and may result in your whole leg being in plaster, or an extended period of time spent in hospital. Hip injuries can be particularly disabling for older people, in whom the hip joint is particularly fragile, and can result in hip replacement becoming necessary, and a significant loss of mobility.
Knee Injury and Ligament Damage
Knee injuries can also be particularly medically complicated, due to the bone, tendon and muscle complications that can arise around that joint. The anterior cruciate ligament is a particularly commonly injured part of the knee and can occur when the knee is jarred, perhaps due to an uneven floor.
