Although most fractures of the proximal femur result from a fall and are related to direct loads to the hip, there is evidence that intrinsic factors, such as muscle contraction, can result in a hip fracture and subsequent fall. This paper reviews the current literature on the various mechanisms of femoral neck and intertrochanteric fractures
