Symptoms of Hip Arthritis

Arthritis usually comes on slowly with pain that gradually increases over time. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. This type of arthritis is caused by the breakdown of cartilage. Conversely, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system turns on itself and begins attacking healthy tissue. Rheumatoid arthritis is generally more difficult to treat long-term.

Symptoms of arthritis include:

  • Stiffness
  • Pain
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Swelling
  • Clicking noises when moving the hip

Be Sure to Explore All Your Options Before Considering Surgery
