Hip Disorders

The hip is the largest joint and strongest in the human body. It is a multiaxial, synovial ball and socket joint formed between the acetabulum (pelvis) and the femur (thigh bone). 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 cushion 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.
