Hip care

Man running with hip pain

​​​​​​​​​The hip joint is the largest and most active joint of the human body. It’s a ball-and-socket joint that helps you bear your body weight. It’s designed for everyday activities such as standing, walking and jumping. The hip joint is moved by a group of muscles, which allows for a wide range of motion, while still providing good stability. 

Surrounded by muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and nerves, the hip joint is vulnerable to problems if any of these structures are affected by injury or disease. Hip injury and pain is caused by a variety of issues including falls, accidents, chronic overuse, age and conditions such as arthritis or hip impingement.
