The Hip

The hip joint is a highly mobile ball and socket joint. Despite its high level of mobility, the joint’s structure maintains high levels of stability. Structural variations within the joint can compromise this stability.

Common hip conditions include:

  • Femoroacetabular impingement (CAM and pincer lesions)
  • Trochanteric and iliopsoas bursitis
  • Tendinopathies and tears such as iliopsoas and gluteal tendinopathies
  • Hip joint pathology such as labral tears, chondral wear, and synovitis
  • Hip osteoarthritis
  • Stress fractures
  • Muscle dysfunctions such as strains
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Snapping hip syndrome
