What are the symptoms of a hip fracture?
Most hip fractures happen after a fall or blow to the hip. Symptoms include severe pain around the hip and groin, bruising and swelling, not being able to stand on the injured leg or move or rotate it. The injured leg may appear shorter and tend to turn outwards.
