Hip pain treatment options

The hip joint is one of the body’s largest weight-bearing joints and is the point where the thigh bone (femur) and the pelvis (acetabulum) join. 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 a smooth articular cartilage that cushions and enables smooth movements of the joint.
