Hip Pain

The hip is one of the body's largest weight-bearing joints. It consists of two main parts: a ball (femoral head) at the top of your thighbone (femur) and a rounded socket (acetabulum) in your pelvis.

Hip Pain

A layer of cartilage helps cushion the bones and enables smooth movement. Hip pain can result from various conditions, ranging from arthritis to injuries.

Symptoms of Hip Dysfunction

Hip dysfunction can manifest in different ways, including pain in the hip, discomfort in the groin, thigh, or buttocks, and may radiate down the leg. Common symptoms include stiffness, weakness, reduced range of motion, swelling, tenderness, and difficulty walking or standing for long periods.
