Hip Osteoarthritis

Hip osteoarthritis is a progressive disorder which causes inflammation in the hip joint. It’s the most common cause of hip pain in older Australians.

When the cartilage covering the bony surfaces of the hip joint has worn away, the bones rub on each other causing the pain of arthritis.

This can be managed well in the early stages with medication and exercise therapy. Once the pain is impacting on quality of life and the non-operative measures aren't working, hip replacement surgery needs to be considered.
