Hip Problems

Most cases of hip pain in adults are caused by osteoarthritis.

This is the most common type of arthritis in the UK.

When arthritis affects the hip joint it causes pain and stiffness. The pain of hip arthritis is usually felt in the groin, the front of the thigh spreading down to the knee and also over the after side of the top of the thigh.

Hip stiffness makes it increasingly difficult to reach the foot to cut toenails and to put socks and shoes on.

Symptoms from early hip arthritis tend to come and go and can usually be managed by rest and painkillers.

As the pain becomes more persistent and severe it may get to a point where hip replacement surgery is the only way to relieve the symptoms and a discussion with a hip surgeon is needed.

Today is my last day of infusion. But I know I will be back …not as a patient but a visitor. I have only positive things to say about the nurses at Medilife here in infusion and also on the 4th Floor. They all called me by my name when I walked in the door.
