Caption: Hip joint. X-ray of a normal human hip joint. The hip joint is formed from the articulation of the femur bone in the upper leg with the pelvis (upper right). The head of the femur forms a ball which fits securely into the acetabulum, a deep, cup- like cavity in the pelvis (upper centre). This forms an extremely stable ball and socket joint, which is stabilised by tough ligaments. The hip joint supports the weight of the upper body as well as taking the strain of running, jumping and vigorous leg movements. Common disorders of the hip include arthritis and fractures of the neck of the femur, where the head joins the shaft.
