What Is Osteoarthritis Of The Hip?
Osteoarthritis of the hip is a common cause of hip pain and stiffness.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disorder where the cartilage in your joints
progressively wears away. Without this cushioning in the joints, your bones rub
against each another as you move. Bony growths, or spurs, can also form
around the joint, causing pain.
Which Joints Are Affected By Osteoarthritis Pain?
Generally, osteoarthritis occurs in your hips, knees, hands and spine.
Osteoarthritis of the hip joint causes stiffness and reduced range of motion
which may make walking painful and difficult. If you suffer with osteoarthritis of
the hip, there are some simple tips to make sure you can get back into enjoying
an active and busy life-style.
What Are The Symptoms Of Osteoarthritis?
The most common symptom of osteoarthritis is pain in the affected joint.
Osteoarthritis joint pain is usually worse later in the day. There can be swelling,
warmth and creaking of the affected joints. Pain and stiffness of the joints can
also occur after long periods of inactivity, for example, sitting still. In severe
osteoarthritis, loss of the cartilage cushion creates friction between the bones,
causing pain. When the cartilage deteriorates, the bone next to it becomes
inflamed and can produce new bone growth in the form of a bony spur.
Can I Keep Hip Osteoarthritis Pain Under Control?
Yes. Osteoarthritis of the hip joint may cause you pain in the hips, lower back,
groin and buttocks, as well as swelling and stiffness. While osteoarthritis often
worsens with age, there are some natural alternatives that can help keep your
symptoms under control to prevent hip osteoarthritis from impacting your life.
