The hip is an important joint that helps us walk, run and jump. The hip’s ball-and-socket joint is formed by the round end of the femur (thighbone) and the cup-shaped acetabulum socket (part of the pelvis). Stability of the hip joint is achieved by the labrum (a strong fibrous cartilage that covers the acetabulum and seals it), ligaments (tissues connecting bone to bone), and tendons (tissues connecting muscle to bone) that encase the hip and support the hip movements.
