The thin tissue that covers bone surfaces providing smooth, friction free movement is called cartilage. Cartilage is supposed to last a lifetime. But accidents, injury or degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis can damage cartilage causing significant swelling, pain and an impact on mobility.

Symptoms of hip osteoarthritis can include:

  • Groin pain
  • Thigh pain
  • Buttock pain
  • Limited ability to bend or straighten your hip
  • A feeling of grinding or catching when you hip moves
  • Weakened muscles

Treatment for hip osteoarthritis may include:

  • Exercise and/or physiotherapy
  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Walking aides

If conservative treatments for your hip osteoarthritis are not successful, your GP may order an x-ray. In some cases you may be referred to a specialist surgeon for hip arthroscopy or hip replacement.
