Osteoarthritis of the Hip

Hip osteoarthritis has no single specific cause, but there are certain factors that may make you more likely to develop the disease, including increasing age, family history, previous injury to the hip joint, obesity, and improper formation of the hip joint at birth. You can still develop osteoarthritis of the hip even if you don't have any of these risk factors.

Symptoms of Hip Osteoarthritis

  • Pain in your groin or thigh that radiates to your buttocks or your knee
  • Pain that flares up with vigorous activity
  • Stiffness in the hip joint that makes it difficult to walk or bend
  • "Locking" or "sticking" of the joint, and a grinding noise during movement
  • Decreased range of motion in the hip that affects the ability to walk and may cause a limp
  • Increased joint pain with rainy weather
