NC76/S76 Injury of muscle, fascia, tendon or bursa at hip or thigh level



Injury of muscle, fascia, tendon or bursa at hip or thigh level is typically caused by a traumatic event such as a fall, a direct blow, or a sudden change in direction or force of movement. Such injuries can also be caused by overuse or repetitive strain, such as repetitive running or jumping.


Diagnosis of this type of injury is typically based on a physical examination and an imaging study, such as an X-ray, MRI, or ultrasound.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis may include other causes of hip or thigh pain, such as hip osteoarthritis, bursitis, or tendinitis.


Treatment of this type of injury typically involves rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be prescribed to reduce pain and inflammation. Physical therapy may be recommended to improve flexibility and strength, and to speed up the healing process. In some cases, surgery may be needed to repair the damaged tissue.


The prognosis for this type of injury is generally good. With proper rest and treatment, the injury should heal completely in a few weeks to a few months.
