Hip joint connects the extremities to the trunk. It is a second major joint in our extremity which is responsible for carrying the weight of our upper body. As we stand, our weight is distributed evenly from our low back into both pelvic joints and into the hip towards each of our foot. Hence, it is a load bearing joint of our body and connects us to one of the strongest bone, the femur (thigh bone).

​ Two Major stabilizing muscles of our legs, Gluteus Medius and Gluteus Maximus, are attached to the hip joint. Gluteus medius is responsible for controlling the lateral movements of the pelvis and stabilizes it when we take one step at a time. Gluteus Maximus, a powerful muscle which helps extend your hip, is considered an engine of the Lower Extremity.
