The hip joint is a ball and socket joint where the femoral head (top of the thigh bone) sits within a corresponding socket (the acetabulum) that is part of the pelvis. As well as conditions that affect the actual ball and socket part of the hip joint, there are a number of other structures around the hip joint that can be injured. These can cause pain, difficulty with walking or discomfort / limitations in performing athletic activities or everyday tasks such as squatting.
