Hip Arthritis

Our specialists are ready to treat your hip arthritis with a plan created to fit your specific injury. Hip arthritis commonly is treatable using a variety of nonsurgical methods, though surgery is an option if these treatments fail to alleviate pain.*

Hip Arthritis is the aggravation of the hip joint. This injury can cause pain and stiffness while performing everyday activities such as bending, rising, and walking. Hip arthritis gradually worsens over time, so it is important to contact a doctor and start treatment as soon as possible if you experience symptoms.

Understanding the Causes Of Hip Arthritis

Hip arthritis is caused by inflammation to a joint, which in turn breaks down cartilage tissue. Cartilage tissue acts to reduce friction in joints, and the lack of it can cause pain during movement. Arthritis develops over time, and symptoms are known to increase in substantiality.

Symptoms include:

  • Stiffness in the hip that causes difficulty walking or bending
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Pain after sessions of activity
  • Groin pain that radiates to your knee or buttocks

Diagnosing Your Hip Arthritis

Often, diagnosis can be made through a range of physical tests. As well, imaging tests can help confirm a diagnosis.

Testing for hip arthritis includes:

  • Physical examination
  • X Rays
  • CT/CAT scan

Treatment Options For Hip Arthritis

There are many treatments to help deal with hip arthritis. Commonly, physical therapy is used as a countermeasure. There are also a range of surgeries available depending on the severity of the injury.

Treatments include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Use of an assistive device
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Surgical procedures

*The effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment will vary by patient and condition. New York Spine Institute does not guarantee certain results.
