Hip Arthritis Treatment in Nashville
What is Hip Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis of the hip, also known as degenerative joint disease, is a chronic disease of the joint cartilage and bone that causes joint inflammation and hip pain. It is often thought to result from "wear and tear" on a joint. Joints appear larger, are stiff and painful, and usually feel worse with increased use throughout the day. Most patients feel pain and limitations in movement when using the joint. Approximately 10 million Americans have been diagnosed with this condition.
