The hip is a ball and socket joint. The socket is the part of the hip bone called the acetabulum, and the head of the femur is called the ball. Articular cartilage lines the ball and the socket and functions to reduce friction for smooth joint movement.
There are two important groups of ligaments that hold the bones of the knee joint together, the collateral and the cruciate ligaments. An injury to the knee can lead to stretching or partial or complete tearing of any of these ligaments.
The bones in the knee joint are lined by cartilage which protect the bones and help them glide over each other during movement. Knee injuries can cause damage to the articular cartilage which does not have a direct blood supply. As a result, cartilage injuries do not heal easily and can lead to osteoarthritis.
