hipThe Hip

The hip is a ball and socket joint that allows the upper leg to move from front to back as well as side to side.

The “ball” part consists of the head of the femur (which is the largest and heaviest bone in the body). The “socket” is the acetabulum, a cavity in the pelvis that holds the femoral head.
