Posted by & filed under latest update from our clients.

Hip osteoarthritis happens when the cartilage in the joints of the hips wears off, leaving the bones unprotected. It can result in a painful hip joint when the bones rub against the other during movements. The hip joint may ultimately fail which may limit a person’s mobility.

According to a study published in The Permanente Journal, 9.2% of adults aged 45 and more develop hip osteoarthritis and it’s more common to women than men. The Center for Disease Control, on the other hand, states that symptomatic hip osteoarthritis occurs among 18.5% of men and 28.6% of women.
