The hip joint is the largest weight-bearing joint in the human body. It is also referred to as a "ball and socket" joint and is surrounded by muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The thigh bone (femur) and the pelvis join to form the hip joint.
The knee is made up of four bones. The femur (thigh bone) is the bone connecting the hip to the knee. The tibia (shin bone) connects the knee to the ankle. The patella (kneecap) is the small bone in front of the knee and rides on the knee joint as the knee bends.
The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body, making it the most susceptible to instability and injury. It is a "ball and socket" joint. A "ball" at the top of the upper arm bone (humerus) fits neatly into a "socket" (glenoid) which is part of the shoulder blade (scapula).
The arm in the human body is made up of three bones that join together to form a hinge joint called the elbow. The upper arm bone (humerus) connects from the shoulder to the elbow, forming the top of the hinge joint. The lower arm (forearm) consists of two bones: the radius and the ulna.
Foot & Ankle
The ankle consists of three bones attached by muscles, tendons, and ligaments that connect the foot to the leg. There are two bones in the lower leg called the tibia (shin bone) and the fibula. These bones articulate (connect) to the talus (ankle bone) at the tibiotalar joint (ankle joint) allowing the foot to move up and down.
Hand & Wrist
The hand in the human body is made up of the wrist, palm, and fingers. The most flexible part of the human skeleton, the hand enables us to perform many of our daily activities. When our hand and wrist are not functioning properly, daily activities such as driving a car, bathing, and cooking can become impossible.
Neck & Back
The spine, also called the back bone, is designed to give us stability, smooth movement, as well as providing a corridor of protection for the delicate spinal cord. It is made up of bony segments called vertebrae and fibrous tissue called intervertebral discs.
