FAQ

Moving the legs is central to most physical activities, and the hip joint is one of the body’s most important joints.  Like the shoulder joint, it makes use of a ball and socket construction to move in all directions instead of just one or two; it also supports half the body’s weight.  Because of this, it can be devastating when something goes wrong with the hip, but there are many hip problems that can affect it.  In a healthy joint, the bones are cushioned by a layer of cartilage as well as fluid to prevent the bones from rubbing against each other.  In osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks down, leading to joint pain and stiffness. Osteoarthritis is the cause of 90 percent of hip replacements.                                                                                           
Rheumatoid arthritis is a similar disease with a different cause.  It is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attack the membrane lining the inside of the joint.  This causes swelling, heat and inflammation and can damage the joint over time, making it even worse.  There are other, less common forms of arthritis that can also attack the hips, including ankylosing spondylosis and infectious arthritis, caused by a bacterial, viral or fungal infection in the joint.  Autoimmune disorders other than rheumatoid arthritis can also have an effect on the hip.  This includes lupus, a chronic disease where the person’s antibodies attack healthy tissues throughout the body.  Lupus has a strong effect on joints, causing inflammation and pain. Sciatica is an inflammation of the large sciatic nerve, which runs along the spine and down the leg to the foot.  It can be irritated by such issues as a pinched disc, causing pain to radiate continuously from the hip.                                                                      
Inflammation is a common theme in many hip problems.  The body’s joints are cushioned with fluid-filled sacs; when these become inflamed, the result is bursitis, another painful chronic condition.  Finally, injuries to the hip can range from minor to devastating. The hip joint can become fractured or broken in a fall, car accident or other impact, especially if the person’s bones are brittle.  This most often affects the femur.  Since a cast is not practical in this area, it is typically set using pins and screws; the person can also receive a hip replacement if the bone cannot be healed. Finally, the hip can be dislocated in a car wreck or impact. If this happens, a doctor must pop the hip joint back in place; permanent damage to nerves or cartilage may result.
