HIP PROBLEMS AND TREATMENTS

 

THE NORMAL  HIP

The hip joint is one of the body’s largest weight-bearing joints, located between the top of the thigh bone (femur) and the pelvis (acetabulum). It is a ball and socket joint in which the head of the femur is the ball and the pelvic acetabulum forms the socket. The joint surface is covered by smooth articular cartilage which acts as a cushion and enables smooth movements of the joint. Normally, the hip joint allows free movement in all directions.
