Post-traumatic Arthritis of the Hip

After an injury to the joint in which the bone and cartilage do not heal properly, the joint is no longer smooth. As a result, post-traumatic arthritis may develop. Therefore, these abnormalities lead to excessive wear on the joint surface and the development of osteoarthritis.

Post-traumatic arthritis may develop after a serious joint fracture or torn ligament. Any traumatic injury to the joint, ligament or supporting muscles makes the joint unstable. This increased stress on the joint cartilage can lead to arthritis.
