Treating Osteoarthritis of the Hip in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Osteoarthritis of the Hip. Like other joints that carry your weight, your hips may be at risk for wear and tear arthritis (osteoarthritis), the most common form of the disease. It is a gradual breakdown of cartilage in the joints, which is a tough, flexible connective tissue that protects the ends of the bones in the joints.

Symptoms

Osteoarthritis of the hip may include pain and stiffness in the hip, inner thigh, buttocks, and knees. Movement may increase this pain and the hip may feel tender when pressure is applied. The pain typically worsens with activity and becomes better with rest.

Treatment

Early stages of osteoarthritis of the hip can be treated by resting the hip from the activities that aggravate the joint, follow a physical therapy program to improve motion and strength, use NSAID’s (anti-inflammatory medications), and consider losing weight if you are overweight as this will lessen the stress on the joint. If these methods are not helpful and the condition continues to progress surgery may be needed to repair the joint.

If you are experiencing hip pain, weakness of the hip, stiffness of the hip or night time hip pain, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
