The hip joint is a ball and socket joint between the head of the femur (thigh bone) and the acetabulum (the socket of the pelvis). The joint is covered by an extensive capsule which helps to lubricate the joint and gains further support from 3 deep, strong ligaments.

From a muscular perspective, their are a number of muscles that stabilise the joint and allow it to move forwards and backwards. Weight bearing muscles located on the inside and the outside of the hip and pelvis all helping to add to the joints stability. Problems in this area may result in one or more of the following- all of which we can treat:
