What is Hip Arthritis?
Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes the bones and soft tissues of the joints to become irritated and inflamed. Hip osteoarthritis, which is commonly referred to as simply hip arthritis, is commonly caused by the aging process and injuries. The symptoms of hip arthritis include the following:
Symptoms may present in the hip, groin, thighs, or buttocks. In some cases, symptoms may limit a patient’s ability to perform day-to-day activities like standing, getting dressing, and walking.
The Fellowship Trained and Board Certified Hip Specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates are experts at accurately diagnosing and treating hip arthritis. We prescribe customized treatment plans based your unique condition and goals.
How is it treated?
Treating hip arthritis in its early stage is always best. Our Orthopaedic Hip Specialists commonly use the following nonsurgical treatment options:
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Physical therapy
- Activity modification
- Assistive walking devices
Hip arthritis that reaches severe stages and has not responded to conservative treatments may require surgical intervention in the form of a Hip Replacement Procedure. The Fellowship Trained and Board Certified Hip Specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates use the latest Hip Replacement Techniques to help give patients maximum results. In fact, many of our Hip Replacement Procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis. Olympia Orthopaedic Associates is the only orthopaedic group in the area to offer this revolutionary surgical option as part of our Outpatient Joint Replacement Program.
