In 1964, Mennell described the hip joint as the most nearly perfect joint in the body. The hip connects the pelvis to the lower extremities and is considered one of the largest joints of the human body. Its primary roles are to allow weight-bearing through the lower extremities and to ensure stability, both in standing and when mobilising. The surrounding muscles enable the hip joint to withstand high forces during daily activities. Dynamic stability provided by the hip muscles can increase the static stability of the bones, ligaments, capsules and bursae. This course will explore the key anatomical features that enable the hip to perform its many roles.
This course aims to introduce a functional approach to understanding hip joint anatomy.
