The hip is one of the human body’s largest weight-bearing joints. It consists of two main parts: a ball at the top of your thigh bone and the rounded socket in the pelvis. Ligaments hold the ball in the socket and provide stability to the joint. A smooth protective cover called the articular cartilage covers the bone surfaces of the ball and socket and cushions the ends of the bones, enabling them to move easily against one another.
