The hip joint is unique anatomically, physiologically, and developmentally; therefore understanding the basic structure and biomechanics of the hip is essential for clinicians, physiotherapists and engineers alike. In this review we outline the function of the key anatomical components of the hip and discuss the relevant related biomechanical issues. Understanding the forces that cross the hip and the details of the anatomy leads to a better understanding of some of the failures of the past and… CONTINUE READING
