Anatomy of the Hip

One of the body’s largest weight bearing joints, the hip is the joint which connects the thigh bone and pelvis. It consists of two parts acetabulum and the femoral head.

Acetabulum is a bone socket on the pelvis in which the head of the femur fits perfectly.

The femoral head is bone located at the top of the femur (thigh bone) and it has a shape of a ball.

Ligaments connect the femoral head and acetabulum, stabilizing the hip joint and forming the joint capsule. Synovium produces a vicious fluid which helps lubricate the joint. Bursa, which are sacs filled with fluid, provide the necessary cushioning between the bones, muscles and ligaments of the hip joint.

The hip is surrounded by large and strong muscles of the human body which enable the joint movement. Muscles surrounding the hip joint are gluteal, iliopsoas muscle, quadriceps, hamstrings and adductor muscle.

Major nerves and blood vessels of the human body also run through the hip, including the sciatic nerve, the femoral nerve as well as the femoral artery.
