Abstract

In this work the change of stress distribution in the hip joint articular surface after shifting of the upper part of the body towards the painful hip due to pain reflex is estimated theoretically by using a three dimensional mathematical model. It is shown that after displacement of the upper part of the body towards the painful hip the stress in the hip joint can be in case of poor femoral head coverage and small inclination of the pelvis very little decreased in spite of the fact that the resultant hip joint force is reduced considerably. Key words: stress in the hip joint, body shitting.
