Hip Joint Care for Patients in the El Paso Area and Beyond
The hip is responsible for keeping us upright as we walk. A healthy hip can easily take on great force but that doesn’t mean this joint is infallible. Contact sports, overuse and falling can result in hip injuries. Diseases such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis can result in hip pain and weakness, respectively. If you’re facing any type of hip pain or injury, then it’s time to seek medical attention. Sun City Orthopaedic & Hand Surgery Specialists will gladly provide what you require so you can stop living in pain.
Anatomy of The Hip
The hip is both extremely strong and incredibly flexible. This is due to its unique anatomy. The ball-and-socket construction provides your leg with three types of flexibility known as hip flexion and extension, hip abduction and adduction, and rotation. The first gives you the ability to move your leg back and forth. The second allows for side and inward movement. The third focuses on inward and outward rotation as well as the movement of straightened legs in the toes’ direction.
The hip joint itself is made up of bones, articular cartilage, muscles, ligaments, tendons and synovial membrane and fluid. Every component works together to provide seamless motion and articulation. As time goes on, however, your hip joint can suffer from wear and tear eventually leading to pain and injury. If the components degenerate or become compromised or irritated, then hip problems will ensue.
