Your hips and knees have one of the most challenging jobs of the body: they must bear your full weight while allowing for a wide range of motion at the same time.

Your hip is the joint where your thigh bone meets your pelvis bone. Hips are called ball-and-socket joints because the ball-like top of your thigh bone moves within a cup-like space in your pelvis. Your hips are very stable, and when they are healthy, it takes great force to hurt them.

However, hip pain can make daily activities, such as getting in and out of a car or climbing the stairs, nearly impossible. The pain can be caused by deformity, injury or most commonly by osteoarthritis.
