The hip is a ball and socket joint. The socket sits in the pelvic bone, and the ball is at the top of your femur, or thigh bone. Several muscles and tendons, including the joint, support the hip, and these can be injured during exercise.

Its value lies chiefly in money matters and handiness – a £20 roll of foam can customarily provide much of the outcomes of rather costly ‘manual’ soft tissue work. Muscles are covered in connective tissue that coats the entire muscle endlessly with the tendons, and layers within the belly adjoining both fascicles (bundles of muscle fibres surrounded by perimysium) and specific muscle fibres. These fascial masses can amass scar matter and other anomalies that disturb the smooth...
