  • Hip Injuries

    The hip is the largest joint and strongest in the human body. It is a multiaxial, synovial ball and socket joint formed between the os coxa (hip bone) and the femur. The rounded projection or ball (femoral head) at the top of the thigh bone (femur) fits into the pelvic girdle's socket (acetabulum). Both the ball and socket are lined with cartilage, which cushions the joint. The space in each ball and socket joint is lined with a thin membrane called the synovium. The synovium cushions the joint and secretes a lubricating fluid (synovia), which reduces bone friction and help with fluid movement.

    Physiotherapists (PTs) are experts in the evaluation and treatment of hip pain and dysfunctions. We care for people of all ages and treat a variety of muscle, joint and neurological conditions.
