Osteoarthritis is inflammation that results from the wearing away of cartilage over time. That cartilage protects your joints and creates a smooth surface. As the cartilage wears away, the surface between the joint loses its cushion and lubrication, causing bone-on-bone friction and often resulting in bone spurs. Hip arthritis most commonly occurs in people older than 50, and develops slowly.
- Increasing age
- Previous hip injury
- Excess weight
- Pain around the hip joint that worsens over time
- Stiffness, often worse in the morning or in rainy weather
- Decreased range of motion
