The hip joint is the most important joint of the human body. It allows us to walk, run, and jump. The hip joint not only bears the entire body’s weight; it is also one of the most flexible joints, allowing a great range of motion. However, despite its durability, the joint is not indestructible. Age and overuse can cause wear and tear or the joint may get damaged causing pain. Hip fracture, particularly in elderly people can occur due to the result of a fall or other injuries.
