Abstract

The hip joint is a ball-and-socket that combines a wide range of motion (ROM) with considerable stability. The stability of the hip depends upon the deep placement of the femoral head into the acetabular socket, fibrocartilaginous acetabular labrum, the strong capsule and ligaments, and the powerful muscles surrounding the joint.
