Arthritis and Your Hip

How does arthritis affect your hip?

Arthritis of the hip is a disease that wears away the cartilage between the ball and socket of the hip joint. This causes those two bones to rub against each other and make the joint become uneven and worn. The result for you is hip pain, stiffness and instability. In some cases, your leg motion may even be greatly restricted.
