Your Hip

The hip is one of the largest weight-bearing joints in your body. It is shaped like a ball and socket. The ball is the top of the thigh bone, which is called the femoral head. The socket, which is cup-shaped, is called the acetabulum. It sits in the pelvis.

Causes of Hip Pain

Many diseases can cause a painful hip. Some of these include:

  1. Osteoarthritis
  2. Rheumatoid arthritis
  3. Posttraumatic arthritis
  4. Avascular necrosis
  5. Childhood hip disease

The onset of symptoms in your hip may be gradual. The pain may come and go. It may occur only when you walk long distances, bend over, or climb stairs. As the disease gets worse, you may notice pain when you are sitting, lying down, or even sleeping. The pain may last for longer periods of time and may never go away.

Typically, you will first feel the pain in your groin or on the side or back of your hip. It may extend to the front of your thigh and down to your knee. Your hip may feel stiff or tight.

Nonsurgical Treatment

There are many ways to treat an arthritic hip without surgery. These include:

  • Activity changes
  • Medications
  • Weight loss and exercise
  • Walking aids
Surgical Treatment
Total hip replacement is the most common surgical procedure used to treat an arthritic hip. Other procedures such as partial or bipolar replacement, hip fusion, and surface replacement, are less common.
After Surgery
After surgery you will be admitted to the hospital. You will be monitored during the post-operative period and given pain medicine. You will be given antibiotics to protect your hip from infection. Blood thinners and other measures such as support stockings help prevent clots from forming in your legs.
Total hip replacement is a highly successful procedure that can relieve pain in your hip and improve your mobility.

Understanding the goals of surgery, the benefits, and the risks is important when you are making the decision to have or not have surgery. To Learn More visit Ortho Info
