The hip joint consists of the femur and the pelvis. Hip joints, like shoulders, are ball and socket joints that are capable of ranges of motion in all planes of movement.

Hip pain can be particularly disabling. It’s difficult to relieve pressure on your hip joint, as there are few positions you can adopt that don’t put any weight on your hips. Hip pain can make it hard to sleep, and you could well be having problems walking and getting up and sitting down.
