What Hip Arthritis Is All About

Dec 30, 2007
Hip arthritis usually affects people who are middle age, overweight, or hereditary (tends to run in your family history).

Hip arthritis tends to progress as the condition worsens over a period of time. Some people have better months than others, and often feel the changes in the weather. Other common symptoms include feeling pain, as you continue your daily routine. You may not be able to move around as often as you would like to as you may feel pain and stiffness in the hip joint, or you might walk with a slight limp.

Arthritis commonly affects, feet, knees, hips and fingers. The common symptoms of hip arthritis include inflammation, stiffness and pain in the joints. The earlier symptoms include pain and stiffness in the hip, groin, inner thigh or knee areas.

Signs of Hip Arthritis

The classic sign of arthritis is joint pain. Pain is usually worse in the morning and lessens during the day. However, increased vigorous activity can result in your back pain getting stiffer and worse as you progress your activity.

Treatment for Hip Arthritis

If your hip arthritis symptoms are severe, it is better to go and see your doctor.
During the examination, your doctor will find out where the pain is and how to treat it. X-rays and blood work will also help determine your diagnose of hip arthritis.

Over the counter medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen may help the pain. Assistive devices, such as a walking cane, walker, a shoe horn or reacher (to help you reach stuff that are higher than you normally could reach) may make it easier for you to continue your daily activities of daily living.

If these treatments do not work that surgery may be recommended. The surgery depends on a few factors that include your age, the condition of the hip joint, type of inflammatory arthritis you have, and the progress of the disease. Your doctor will discuss what options are available to you and what the outcome you will expect to happen.

Hip surgery is the most common surgery and often recommended. Hip surgery will help provide pain relief and reduce the inflammation of hip arthritis.

Arthritis of the hip makes moving, bending and walking difficult through out your daily routine. Hip arthritis can cause problems with walking and can also lead to a disability if it is left untreated. It is better to see your doctor at the first on sight of trouble. Most people can lead a normal productive life with treatment and medication.
