Hip joint stability is a marriage of complementary functions provided by static and dynamic stabilizers. In a normal state, the bony articulation between the femoral head and quasi-hemispheric actabulum provides inherent stability to the hip. The congruence of the joint is further optimized by normal proximal femoral and acetabular offset, coverage, inclination, and version.1,2. The fibrous hip joint capsule is intimately related to a confluence of 4 constraint to the joint throughtout a wide variety of physiological motions
