The hip joint is one of the largest joints in the body. It is composed of one osseous joint. The hip is built for weight-bearing and movement in several different planes. Most of the stability of the hip is derived from the deep joint socket, made even more stable from the joint capsule, ligaments, surrounding muscles, and a cartilaginous rim called the labrum.

A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that decreases friction between a tendon and the underlying bone. It can become inflamed because of direct trauma or overuse. This condition is referred to as hip bursitis or trochanteric bursitis.
