Arthritis & Your Hip

Your hip is a ball & socket joint in the pelvis. It connects your torso to the legs and helps you to move. It is formed by the ball at the upper end of the thigh bone sitting in a socket in the pelvis. The ball and socket have a snug fit. Ligaments & muscles make the joint stable. The bony ends are lined by a natural cushion called cartilage. This is the smooth shiny lining of the joint. It protects and cushions the bone ends. Arthritis or arthrosis is the leading cause of hip pain. In this condition there is a progressive wearing away of joint cartilage. It is manifested by pain, stiffness, limp and reduced mobility.
