Osteoarthritis in the Hips, Health Channel

Gregory Kaplan, Physical Therapist with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says osteoarthritis in the hips is not as common as it is in the knees and the hands. Some of its symptoms are inflammation in the hip joint and also in the lower back or spine, and narrowing of the space within the joints.

He explains the body has a great way of continuing to adapt so you can still perform the movement, but it may be not in the right way. He recommends paying attention to your body and noticing when changes are occurring.
