If you are experiencing joint stiffness in your hip along with pain and tenderness, you could be suffering from hip arthritis or osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis accounts for being the most common form of arthritis. It is referred to as degenerative joint disease and old-age arthritis and usually, occurs because of age-related issues. The condition occurs when injury and inflammation of a joint lead to the breakdown of the cartilage tissue, causing pain, swelling, and deformity.
How hip arthritis affects the hip joint?
People who are affected by osteoarthritis of the hip may have difficulty in walking properly. Diagnosis in the early stage is difficult as pain may occur in various locations such as the thigh, groin, knee or buttocks.
The underlying causes
The factors responsible for osteoarthritis include increasing age, joint injury and excess body weight. Some other factors may also be responsible. They are as follows:
- When the joints have formed improperly.
- In case of inherited defects in the cartilage.
- When a person puts excess stress on the hip joint because of being overweight or due to certain activities and motions.
How it can be detected?
The different symptoms of hip arthritis or osteoarthritis are as follows:
- Joint stiffness, especially after waking up in the morning.
- Joint stiffness after sitting for a long period.
- Swelling, pain, and tenderness in the hip joint.
- A crunching feeling or sound of bones rubbing against one another.
- The inability to move the hip for carrying out daily activities.
The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to improve the patient’s ability to move about so that his regular life is less affected. The function of the hip and pain management are other targets of treatment for this condition. The different treatment plans are as follows:
- Proper joint care and rest
- Using a cane while walking for taking weight off your hip
- Losing excessive weight
- Non-drug pain relief measures for controlling pain
- Regular exercise
- Several medicines, including NSAIDS and other prescribed pain medication
- Alternative therapies
Hip replacement surgery
This is a surgical procedure used for osteoarthritis treatment when all other treatment plans fail. The damaged ball of the hip joint is replaced with a metal ball in this surgical procedure. The hip socket is resurfaced by using a plastic liner and metal shell. Apart from the mentioned treatment procedures, hip resurfacing is another surgical option for osteoarthritis treatment, which helps in giving relief when a hip replacement surgery is delayed. In this procedure, the affected hip joint surfaces are surgically removed and are replaced with metal. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.
I used to play cricket and volleyball almost every day but suddenly from past 6 months I encountered knee pain in both of legs. I have been to two hospitals and both of them said there's nothing to be worried, but I'm getting huge pain at my knee area whenever I'm trying to play. Is there anything to be done to reduce that pain so that I can play again regularly without any pain in my knee part.

I am 69 years old male inactive from service since last 15 months & settled in Bangalore staying with my daughter. Since early Nov 2016, I was having occasional pain in my left leg (below Hip. That time, I checked with local orthopaedic who diagnosed it as Trochanteric Bursitis and did not suggest any X-Ray. The pain was on & off.In between I checked with neuro physician, Rheumatologist as well as medicine Specialist. Surprisingly,no one suggested for MRI nor x-ray and suggested to take some pain relief tablets/ointment. For the past 5 weeks, due to pain I was practically at bed except for going to washroom. Today I decided to again check with my Rheumatologist and he suggested to have pelvic MRI. The MRI report is attached for your kind perusal. For your information, I was getting treatment for atherosclerosis Scleroderma for the last 20 years and as part of medication, I was taking steroids (wysolone 5 mg/omnacortil 5 mg) once a day. MRI Report is as follows MRI OF HIP JOINTS TECHNIQUE: Multi-planar, multi-sequence imaging of both hip joints was performed. FINDINGS: Geographic signal abnormalities are seen in both femoral heads (anterior and superior portion) demonstrating double line sign with T1 and T2 hypointense outer margin and T2 hyperintense inner margins. Marrow edema in left femoral head and neck. Small effusion is seen on the left. Hip joint space is maintained bilaterally. Normal marrow signals are noted in the acetabulum. Gluteii, iliopsoas, hamstring and short external rotators are intact. STIR hyperintenstiy noted involving the origin of left vastus lateralis muscle - edema. The sacroiliac joints are normal. The pelvic viscera are unremarkable. IMPRESSION: -Avascular necrosis of bilateral femoral head (Ficat and Arlet stage II). -Marrow edema involving left femoral head and neck with mild joint effusion.
Research has shown that sitting for prolonged durations has many dangerous effects on our body in the long term.
1) On your back -
The problem: sitting for long hours can cause muscle aches and pains. It can also lead to abnormal bending of your spine which may make one more prone to have long term back pain.
The solution: keep your back straight and maintain proper posture.
2) On your weight -
The problem: according to a recent research, people who say they watch television frequently are 40 per cent less likely to exercise than non-tv watchers.
The solution: get up and get moving.
3) On your brain
The problem: researchers recently found that prolonged session of watching tv before going to bed makes it harder to fall asleep, reduces sleep, and makes one groggy the next day, even after clocking eight hours of sleep. The reason is that the blue light which the television emits, inhibits the release of melatonin, a hormone that helps you go to sleep.
The solution: limit your tv viewing to two hours after work.
4) On your lungs
The problem: among the many health hazards it causes, sitting for long hours can also shrink your lung capacity by a third, so you get less oxygen, which causes a decrease in mental focus the second you sit on the couch.
The solution: sit on a chair with a pillow behind your lower back. It is a position that helps open your lungs.
5) On your heart
The problem: An international study found out that on an average, every single hour of television watching after 25 reduces life expectancy by close to 22 minutes.
The solution: researchers have discovered little mortality risk for people who watch less than an hour a day. Pick a show that's a real brain numbing deal, so you're more likely to need time between episodes.
