INTRODUCTION THE HIP JOINT: The hip joint is the ball socket joint that is formed between the pelvic bone and the femur. The round cup-shaped structure of the hip bone, called acetabulum forms the socket to the head of the femur, forming a ball-and-socket synovial joint. The stability and versatility of the hip joint are because of the way it is built. As the primary function of the  Hip Joint   is to provide stability and bear our weight, the hip joint is a system of bones, ligaments, cartilage, and muscles which work together to deliver smooth functioning. The ball-and-socket joint is lined with the cartilage that acts as a cushion and the joint is sealed with a synovial capsule that helps in a smooth motion with the help of a lubricating fluid. The Ligaments helps in firmly anchoring the ball to the socket and the muscles coats these ligaments. These muscles and ligaments hold it altogether preventing the dislocation of the joint.
