The hip is a ball-and-socket joint. It is a large and stable joint. Both the ball and socket are lined with cushioning tissue called cartilage. The ball is anchored firmly into the socket with tough connective tissue called ligaments. The muscles of the legs overlay these ligaments. Hip and pelvis injuries can result from a fall, direct blow, twist, or excessive muscle contraction. Your hip and pelvis are designed to withstand constant and demanding workloads when you are playing sports, and also during everyday tasks. Injuries can include dislocations, broken bones, and strained muscles. However, the hip joint is deep within the body and often pain felt around the hip area is not related to the hip joint itself.
