UPPER LEG SPECIALISTS
Pain in the upper thigh can be challenging to diagnose because this area of the body contains many muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
The upper leg specialists and physical therapists at New Mexico Orthopaedics can help you address your symptoms, create a treatment plan to minimize pain, and get you back to you as quickly as possible.
ANATOMY AND COMMON CONDITIONS/INJURIES
The thigh and upper leg muscles are a critical component of the overall musculoskeletal structure of the body. The upper leg comprises the femur (thigh bone), the longest and the heaviest bone in the skeleton, the quadriceps (thigh muscles), the hamstring, the adductors, and numerous tendons that connect all the muscles to the bone.
