Hip Pain

One common type of Osteoarthritis is that of the hip. When Osteoarthritis affects the hip joint, it can cause reduced range of motion as well as a general feeling of stiffness. Sometimes, it can make walking painful and difficult.

Osteoarthritis of the hip joint can present as pain in the lower back, groin, buttocks and, of course, the hips, as a general feeling of swelling and stiffness. Individually, these things can complicate walking and other leg movements - and together, can be very frustrating. While Osteoarthritis often worsens over time, the following tips can help keep your symptoms under control, and help keep hip Osteoarthritis from impacting your life.
