Hip & Knee

The hip is a ball-and-socket joint connecting the thighbone to the trunk of the body, providing a wide range of motion in varied directions. The knee joint unites the upper and lower leg in a series of cartilage, muscles, tendons and ligaments. The correct functionality of these joints gives you the ability to run, squat, jump, and turn, making them critical to enjoying your daily life.
