Hip & Knee
Whether you’re sitting, standing, walking, or bending, your hips are a fundamental component of your daily life. Connecting the thighbone to the trunk, the hip consists of a cup-and-ball-like joint that allows for a great deal of motion in a variety of directions. People of varying ages and lifestyles are susceptible to dozens of different hip conditions and diseases, including osteoarthritis and bursitis.
The knee is a joint that unites the thigh with the rest of the leg and is a system of moving parts consisting of cartilage, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The knee is also a hinge that provides our body with the strength to run, squat, jump, and turn. However, the knee is vulnerable to a number of injuries and conditions because of its inability to rotate in every direction.
