Abstract

Shoulder pain is usually due to injury to one of the structures comprising the joint. The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint and is formed by the articulation of the rounded head of the femur and the cup-like acetabulum formed by the union of three pelvic bones. A good history and physical examination usually determine the cause of the shoulder, hip and knee pain.
