Hip Arthritis (Osteoarthritis)

Hip Arthritis is a condition which occurs as people age, and is related to joint pain and inflammation in the hip, which is a weight-bearing joint. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of Hip Arthritis, and is a degenerative condition, often being called 'Degenerative Joint Disease' or 'Age-related Arthritis'. 

What is Hip Arthritis (Osteoarthritis)?

The hip is one of the body's largest joints, and is covered by a layer of cartilage. In Hip Arthritis (Osteoarthritis), this layer of cartilage is worn down over time, and becomes frayed and rough. This results in the bones rubbing together, and creating pain and inflammation. To make up for the lost cartilage, osteophytes can also form from the damaged bone.
