This type of arthritis, also called "degenerative joint disease," is a breakdown of the cartilage in your hip joint. As this protective cartilage wears away, bone rubs against bone. Bony growths called "bone spurs" may form in the joint. Pain from osteoarthritis can keep you from being as active as you like.
If you believe you may have a disease involving your hip, or if you have had an injury, you may be wondering who can help. What kind of doctor should you go see?More Hip Injuries & Treatments
