Normal Anatomy of the Hip joint
The hip joint is one of the most important joints in the human body. It allows us to walk, run, and jump. The pelvic area is the home for reproductive organs and the end of the line for the digestive tract. The hip joint is one of the most flexible joints in the entire human body. The hip includes thebones known as the pelvis, where the femur—the largest bones in the body—meet to form the legs.
