The hip joint is the largest joint of the human body. It is complicated in order to allow a wide range of motion while still supporting the weight of the body and providing stability. Your hip function can also be affected by lower limb biomechanics involving your knee, foot and ankle plus your thigh and calf muscles. It's integration with the pelvis, Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) and lumbar spine (lower back) make it a complex region to correctly analyse and assess any dysfunction.
Common injuries of the hip include:
- Bone Fracture
- Groin strain
- Hamstring strain
- Osteoarthritis (most common)
- Other forms of inflammatory arthritis e.g. Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Irritable Hip syndrome
