Hip Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
Degeneration of the hip joint is a common issue in older adults. The hip joints balance the weight of the upper body and undergo rigorous wear and tear over the years. Arthritis in the hip joint can cause friction and pain, limiting mobility. At Medici Spine & Pain, we help patients with arthritis to find effective treatments and therapies for hip pain. Our team will provide ways to control the pain and improve function at our clinics in the greater Atlanta area.
Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, can affect any joint in the body. Injuries and normal wear and tear can lead to cartilage deterioration, causing inflammation and friction in the hip. This can lead to osteoarthritis, causing further degeneration of the bone and components. Symptoms of hip osteoarthritis include:
- Pain in the hip or groin that may radiate up the buttocks or down through the leg
- Stiffness in the hip that limits walking or bending
- Locking or grinding in the hip joint when walking
- Range of leg motion is limited
If allowed to continue deteriorating, hip arthritis can lead to a loss of mobility. Hip replacement surgery is very invasive and can have high risks. While osteoarthritis is not curable, there are treatments that can slow down the progression, decrease pain and improve function.
