INTRODUCTION zAlthough the thigh, hip, groin and pelvis area have a relatively low incidence of injury compared to some of the other body areas we have studied, there are some serious problems which can occur in this area, as well as some common problems such as the hamstring and groin strains.

Summary zThigh contusions and hamstring and groin strains are common injuries. zA major complication of the thigh contusion is myositis ossificans. zIt is not clearly understood why strains occur. zFemur fractures and hip dislocations are serious injuries and medical emergencies.
