One particular disease that affects thousands of older New Yorkers is hip arthritis. This specific variety of arthritis occurs as a result of the hip's weight-bearing properties and cartilage use. Often developed due to a result of injury or natural aging, hip arthritis is a condition by which the cartilage in the hip deteriorates and painful bone spurs grow. Numerous other factors can lead to the development of this condition such as defective cartilage and obesity.
Regardless of what has caused the formation of these bone spurs, there are always painful symptoms which define the condition. Chronic pain and restricted movement only increase as more bone spurs develop. Hip arthritis treatment options may include exercise, cortisone injections, and potential hip replacement.
