The hip is the most flexible free-moving joint in the body. The hip specialists at Raleigh Orthopaedic include Dr. Albright, Dr. Barker, Dr. Cadet, Dr. Chiavetta, Dr. Eskildsen, Dr. McNabb, Dr. Vaughn, Dr. Watters and Dr. Wyker, who are trained to diagnose causes of hip pain and treat minor injuries as well as total joint replacement.
How does the hip work?
The hip joint is a ball and socket joint: the ball, or femoral head, is at the upper end of the thigh bone (femur) and fits into a socket (acetabulum). A thick cushion on cartilage covers the ball and lines the socket allowing the ball to move easily in the socket. When the coating of cartilage is damaged or worn out, it cannot repair itself.
