The hip joint is the largest weight-bearing joint in the human body. It is also referred to as a ball and socket joint and is surrounded by muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The thigh bone or femur and the pelvis join to form the hip joint. Any injury or disease of the hip will adversely affect the joint's range of motion and ability to bear weight.

Over the years have you noticed that you can’t walk as far as before? That you’re getting less mobile, with increasing stiffness and discomfort?
The discomfort might not even just be in your hip. You might even have pain in your groin, side of hip, buttock or the front of your thigh as well.
The shape of the ball and socket joint of the hip may matter. Certain shapes of hip (such as the picture above, see arrow to hip) can cause the ball of the hip to rub excessively/”impinge” against the rim of the socket where the soft cartilage (“hip labrum”) may eventually shear off, removing the protection to the hard cartilage afforded by the labrum
