How Do Hip Injuries and Conditions Usually Occur?

Hip injuries can result from trauma, overuse, or medical conditions. These may include fractures, labral tears, and arthritis. Here’s a breakdown of common causes:

Understanding the Anatomy of the Hip

The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that allows for a wide range of motion and supports the weight of the body.


Regions of the Hip

  • Pelvis
  • Femur (Thighbone)


Parts of the Hip

  • Bones: Pelvis and femur.
  • Cartilage: Articular cartilage and labrum.
  • Ligaments: Iliofemoral, pubofemoral, and ischiofemoral ligaments.
  • Tendons: Connect muscles to bones, facilitating hip movement.
