The Hip Joint Anatomy
The hip joint is one of the most important joints in the human body, allowing for a wide range of motion and providing stability for the pelvis and lower extremities. The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint, with the rounded head of the femur fitting into the concave acetabulum of the pelvis. The joint is surrounded by a strong capsule of ligaments and muscles, including the gluteals, quadriceps, and hamstrings, which help to support the joint and enable movement.
What is Hip Pain?
Hip pain is a common condition that affects many people, and it can have a variety of causes. It may be felt in the hip joint itself, but it can also be felt in other areas of the body, such as the upper thigh, glutes, iliotibial band, or groin region. The pain may originate from problems in the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or other soft tissues surrounding the hip joint. Determining the exact location is essential to developing an effective treatment plan.
Diagnosing The Root Cause of Hip Pain
Properly diagnosing the root cause of hip pain is critical to developing an effective treatment plan. At Summit Integrated Health, our team of healthcare professionals utilizes various diagnostic tools to identify the underlying cause of hip pain. These may include physical exams, imaging tests such as X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and blood tests.
