Hip & Thigh - Hip OA

This hip condition usually manifests itself in middle age, causing pain and stiffness of the hip joint. The degeneration of the joint can be due to overuse or a labrum/cartilage tear of the hip joint.

The damage to the hip joint surface can be a result of sporting trauma or repetitive stresses over a long period of time but don’t show up until middle age.

Signs & symptoms:

  • Hip pain and stiffness
  • History of trauma or surgery
  • As it progresses, may radiate to the thigh or back
  • Muscle wasting as condition worsens.

Physiotherapy aims to reduce pain and improve function and strength. If conservative management is not affective surgical intervention may be required.
