The hip is located where the head of the femur, or thighbone, fits into a rounded socket of the pelvis.

This ball-and-socket construction allows for three distinct types of flexibility – Hip flexion and extension, Hip abduction, adduction and Rotation. Hip problems occur when any one of these components starts to degenerate or is in some way compromised or irritated through sports or periodic wear and tear. At NJOSMI we offer the right solution for all hip related injuries, from early diagnosis and treatment to full functional rehabilitation.
