What is Hip Osteoarthritis?
The hip is one of the body’s largest joints. It is a “ball-and-socket” joint. The socket is formed by the acetabulum, which is part of the large pelvis bone. The ball is the femoral head, which is the upper end of the femur (thighbone). Hip arthritis is one of the most common causes of hip pain. Hip arthritis is inflammation of the protective cartilage of the hip joint. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of hip arthritis.
