The hip joint is one of the body’s largest weight-bearing joints and is the point where the thigh bone and the pelvis join. It is a ball and socket joint in which the head of the femur is the ball and the pelvic acetabulum forms the socket.
Sports injuries occur when playing indoor or outdoor sports or while exercising. Sports injuries can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises.
The knee is the most complex joint in the body formed by the articulation between the thigh bone (femur) and the shinbone (tibia). These bones are held together by four strong ropes like structures called ligaments.
Hip and knee joints are the common weight-bearing joints and are also the most commonly affected joints by disease conditions such as arthritis, traumatic injuries or sports injuries. These conditions may affect the joints and impair the mobility as well the quality of life of the patients.
