Hip Joint Overview:
The hip joint is formed by the head of the femur (thigh bone) fitting securely into the acetabulum (socket) in the pelvis. This ball and socket joint is supported by large muscles, ligaments and tendons which keep the ball securely in place within the socket. The hip has a wide range of motion and is one of the more flexible joints in the body. However, the flexibility of the hip makes it inherently vulnerable to injury. Hip pain can cause patients in Westchester to discontinue activities and sports that they love. Dr. Benedict Nwachukwu, orthopedic hip specialist, is an expert at helping patients in Westchester who are having hip pain or who have a hip condition.
