Hip Physical Therapy

The hip bone (os coxae) is a bilateral bone of the bony pelvis that is irregularly shaped. It is also known as the innominate bone, pelvic bone, or coxal bone. It is a composite structure made up of three smaller bones: the ilium, the ischium, and the pubis. The acetabulum is located on the lateral side of the hip bone. It has an anteroinferiorly facing socket-shaped articular surface that articulates with the head of the femur to form the hip joint.


The ilium is the most superior component of the hip bone, with a blade-like shape. It is comprised of two major parts: the body and ala (wing). The body is the smaller, inferior part of the bone that helps form the acetabulum, whereas the ala is the superior expanded part with four borders and three surfaces. The ilium’s ala is distinguished by four distinct borders: superior (iliac crest), anterior, posterior, and medial with three surfaces: gluteal, sacropelvic surfaces, and iliac fossa.


The ischium is the hip bone’s posterior and inferior portion. It is split into two sections: the body and the ramus. The ischium’s body is the largest part of the bone. It projects superiorly to connect the ilium and the superior ramus of the pubis, as well as to contribute to the acetabulum. The ischium ramus extends anteromedially from the inferior aspect of the body to connect with the inferior pubic ramus. These bony rami combine to form the ischiopubic ramus, which serves as the inferior border of the obturator foramen.


The pubis or pubic bone is the anterior and inferior part of the hip bone. This bone is the tiniest part of the hip bone. It is divided into three sections: the body, the superior ramus, and the inferior ramus. The body is anteromedially located, and the two rami extend posterollatery from the body: the superior ramus extends superiorly to the acetabulum, while the inferior ramus continues inferiorly to join the ischial ramus.

Hip problems can be caused by a variety of conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and bone fracture. Some hip problems are more common in children, such as developmental dysplasia of the hip, Perthes’ disease, slipped capital femoral epiphysis, and irritable hip syndrome. Our team of experts at Medharbour is always ready to provide you with the best care and physical therapy for hip pain, regardless of your age.
