Hip Conditions & Injuries


 

HIP CONDITIONS & INJURIES

The hip joint is one of the largest weight-bearing joints in the body. This ball-and-socket joint allows the leg to move and rotate while keeping the body stable and balanced. Let's take a closer look at the main parts of the hip joint's anatomy.

 

 

Hip pain can be among the more serious indicators of substantial orthopaedic problems. Fortunately, most people who say their "hip hurts" don't have anatomical hip pain but rather discomfort on the outside of their thigh or buttock region which is most likely coming from a lower back problem. True hip pain is felt in the groin area and should be investigated. Sometimes disorders of the hip can cause referred pain to the knee.
