Understanding Hip Arthritis

Arthritis refers to joint inflammation that results in pain when moving a certain joint. This can come in a number of types, which should be treated accordingly. Hip osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, and it occurs when inflammation or injury wears out your cartilage and causes friction between your bones, connective tissues, tendons, muscles, and other tissues found in either hip joint. Arthritis may also develop due to autoimmune diseases, injuries, and genetics.

There’s currently no cure for arthritis. However, you can take steps to prevent the damage to your cartilage from progressing and manage the hip joint pain and other symptoms of living with your condition. At Metro Pain Centers, our team of hip arthritis specialists can help you do both. In the process, you can minimize hip arthritis from hindering your quality of life while also adapting to new practices to minimize the pain.  

Causes and Symptoms of Hip Arthritis

Hip arthritis can come in three forms. The most common one, hip osteoarthritis, is a degenerative joint disease often caused by overuse of the hip joints or by aging. If left untreated, your condition can gradually worsen. Hip arthritis can also be caused by rheumatoid arthritis, which is caused by an autoimmune condition that causes inflammatory arthritis, and traumatic arthritis, which can be developed by injuries like fractures, dislocations, or bacterial infection on your hip that affected the cartilage or hip joints involved.

People with hip arthritis will commonly complain about hip pain during movement, which can worsen over time if left untreated. Some of the other symptoms may include:

  • Joint pain that can spread from the hip to the groin, thighs, butt, or knee
  • Pain from prolonged sitting or strenuous activities
  • Stiffness that makes walking, bending, and other hip movements difficult
  • Crepitus (the audible sounds of your bones grinding or cracking, as well as the feeling of them grinding)

Hip Arthritis Treatment and Effective Pain Relief at Metro Pain Centers

If you suspect you have hip arthritis, schedule an appointment with a hip arthritis specialist from Metro Pain Centers. Before seeking pain management treatment, you need to confirm what the condition is to get appropriate treatment. A doctor may recommend x-rays, physical examinations, and other laboratory tests to rule out any other possible conditions.

Treatment is necessary for managing any form of arthritis. If left untreated, your body may continue to wear out your cartilage, which can continue to cause bone spurs and additional pain on your hip. Some of the methods used to treat hip arthritis include:

  • Medications – over-the-counter pain relievers (including NSAIDs, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, etc.), prescription pain medications, corticosteroids (oral or injection), lubrication injections, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs.
  • Physical therapy and occupational therapy – exercises to improve the range of motion and strengthen muscles and joints.
  • Assistive devices – canes, walkers, and other assistive devices to ease pressure off your hip when performing certain activities.
  • Lifestyle modifications – losing excess weight through a proper diet and regular exercise can ease the pressure on joints and reduce the pain of arthritis.
  • Hip surgery – orthopedic surgery such as total hip replacement surgery and hip resurfacing may be considered by an orthopedic doctor. However, joint replacement surgery is usually considered only if all other non-surgical methods are ineffective at managing your hip condition.

At Metro Pain Centers, our patients receive customized treatment plans tailored to their age, condition, lifestyle, and needs. Each plan uses tried and tested methods that can effectively help them manage their condition.
