The hip is made up of three (3) bones, the ilium, ischium and pubis, which meet at the acetabulum, which forms part of the hip joint. The hip joint is between the femur, the largest bone of both the leg and body, and acetabulum of the pelvis, and its main function is to support a person's body weight when standing still and when walking or jogging. The hip joint is the most important part of the body for maintaining balance.
The hip joint has an articular capsule that attaches to the outside of the acetabular lip. The capsule permits the hip joint to have the second largest range of movement by being strong and loose. The capsule is also fibrous by consisting of longitudinal and circular fibers, the former traveling along the femoral neck carrying blood vessels while the latter forming a collar around the femoral neck.
The hip joint is reinforced by four (4) ligaments. Three (3) of these ligaments are extracapsular ligaments that attach to the bones of the pelvis to strengthen the capsule and prevent excessive joint movement, while one is a intracapsular ligament that is attached to the acetabulum and femoral head, which stretches only when the hip is dislocated and acts to prevent further displacement of the hip. The hip's muscles have three (3) degrees of freedom with three (3) pairs of principle directions passing through the femoral head.
If you or a loved one has encountered any hip damage from a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, a slip and fall or from any other personal injury accident, please contact our hip injury lawyers now.Hip Fracture
A hip fracture occurs when the proximal end of the femur near the hip breaks. A hip fracture is a common occurrence for people with osteoporosis or a weakened bone, especially elderly people, but most of the hip fractures that occur in people with normal bones are from the result of high-energy trauma, commonly occurring in the following accidents:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Collisions
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Bicycle Collisions
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Slip & Fall, Trip & Fall and other Premise Liability Accidents
