What is Hip Tendonitis?
The hip is one of the body’s largest joints. It is a “ball-and-socket” joint. The socket is formed by the acetabulum, which is part of the large pelvis bone. The ball is the femoral head, which is the upper end of the femur (thighbone). Hip injuries are common. Sometimes called “snapping hip syndrome,” tendonitis of the hip can be recognized by the snapping or clicking sound the hip makes when performing certain movements.
