Hip Arthritis

Hip arthritis is the second most commonly affected joint. Everyone’s joints go through a normal cycle of wear and tear during their lifetime. As your joints repair themselves, their shape and structure can change. If this happens in one or more of your joints, it’s known as osteoarthritis.

With hip arthritis, the pain comes on gradually over a period of months or years. However, it can also be triggered by a recent injury such as one occurring through sport or by trauma to that area of the body. The pain areas are usually the lower back, buttocks and groin. Some people also feel discomfort from the top of their thigh down to the knee. Pain can also be felt all the way down to the ankle.

If you’re suffering with hip osteoarthritis you’ve probably already tried things like sitting more than standing or walking, tried prescriptions or over-the-counter medications to mask the pain, and utilized props while you sleep because hip arthritis can affect your comfort level while you’re sleeping.

Hip arthritis can limit your ability to stand up straight, to walk for any appreciable amount of time, or to stand on that joint for any length of time while attempting to carry out any sort of household chore. Your hip might also ‘lock’ for a few moments. It’s a debilitating condition that can take away people’s independence. The impact of osteoarthritis can manifest itself beyond physical limitations too as the condition can make people feel depressed or anxious. It can also affect your sleep pattern and even your relationships.
