Why do I have hip pain?

Understanding arthritis

Your hip pain may be due to arthritis or chronic swelling and inflammation in the joint. Arthritis may occur following damage to joint (post-traumatic), wear and tear (osteoarthritis) or generalised inflammatory conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis).

hip arthritis

With osteoarthritis, the cushioning cartilage at the end of the bone may have worn down, causing friction and pain as the bones rubs against each other.

hip arthritis symptoms

With rheumatoid arthritis, a person’s immune system damages the joints with uncontrolled inflammation.

With post-traumatic arthritis, a broken or fractured bone extends into the joint space, causing the surface to become uneven. This may abnormally load the cushioning cartilage causing it to wear down.
