Hips play a fundamental role in your daily function.

Whether we’re sitting, standing, walking, bending—working in the garden, reading a book, doing yoga, or returning a backhand on the tennis court—our hips play a fundamental role in our daily function.

That’s why receiving proper diagnosis and treatment of hip conditions and injuries—because we shouldn’t have to experience pain in our everyday undertakings—is so important.

Understanding the Hip

  • The hip is one of the most important joints in the body, connecting the thighbone to the trunk. It consists of a cup-and-ball-like joint that bears our body’s weight and allows for a great deal of motion in a variety of directions.
  • People of varying ages and lifestyles are susceptible to dozens of different hip conditions and diseases, including: dislocations, hip pointers, osteoarthritis, and bursitis.
  • DID YOU KNOW? The hip joint is one of the most commonly affected large joints in the body by osteoarthritis, which can painfully impact a person’s ability to walk, perform common household activities, and even sit.
