The knee-hip connection. Movements of the hip joint. Healthy hips are able to perform a diverse range of movements (see diagram right). All of these movements and their associated muscles have a direct impact on the knee. If any of the hip muscles are weak, tight or both, they can affect the alignment of the knee joint at rest and in movement.
