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
