It is the largest ball-and-socket joint. The socket is formed by the acetabulum of the pelvis bone. The ball is the femoral head, which is the upper end of the thigh bone.

A smooth tissue called articular cartilage, lines the surfaces of the joint hence enabling them to move smoothly & easily. Synovial membrane surrounds the hip joint, which secretes synovial fluid that lubricates the joint. Ligaments & capsule connects the ball to the socket and provide stability to the joint.

Causes of Hip pain:
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Post traumatic arthritis
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Congenital Hip dislocation
