Hip Arthritis

Hip Arthritis TreatmentThe most common types of hip arthritis are osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease (DJD). A previous hip injury may be to blame or the cartilage may simple wear down over time as part of the normal aging process.

Slowly the cartilage becomes degenerated and uneven, and extra calcium starts to invade the joint space. Movements become painful and you begin to lose normal range of motion. You might notice the hip pain when getting dressed, performing exercises, or just walking. Rest is usually helpful though the pain is likely to worsen over time.

There is no cure for hip arthritis, however most patients achieve pain relief and the ability to return to a decent activity level with our expert involvement.


Our Approach

Traditionally, hip arthritis pain is treated with medications, rest, ice, and physical therapy. While each of these modalities can be helpful they fall short of bringing long-term improvement in reducing pain and increasing function.

As a joint becomes arthritic over time, there are parallel changes in the surrounding tissues (fascia, ligaments, muscles, and tendons). These changes are also degenerative in nature and create trigger points, adhesions, and scarring.

When these areas are treated with our range of specialized manual therapies patients feel much better and can return to a much better quality of life.


Best of all, with proper care and tissue improvement, exercise becomes helpful not hurtful! In more extreme cases surgery may be necessary.
