Total Hip Replacements

By: Dr. Nicole-Bortniker-Wolfin. PT DPT

Your hip joint is a ball and socket joint, consisting of the femur (the ball) and the acetabulum (the socket).  The hip is designed to withstand an incredible amount of force. In fact, an activity as simple and low impact as walking, can impart 1.3-5.8 times your body weight onto your hips!  

Located between the two bones, which make up your hip joint, are articular cartilage and synovium.  The synovium is a thin lining that produces fluid for the cartilage, minimizing friction and allowing for smooth movement of your bones.   The articular cartilage provides a protective cushion which accepts and dissipates the forces imparted on the hip joint.  These structures are crucial in maintaining hip health.
