Hip Ligaments

The hip joint is protected and surrounded by a soft tissue sleeve called the hip joint capsule. Ligaments, soft tissue structures that connect bone to bone, reinforce the capsule. The capsule and ligaments provide passive stability to the hip joint, but allow movements in different planes. The labrum of the hip is a fibrocartilagenous structure that is located at the level of the acetabulum. It provides added depth and stability to the joint.
