If the articular cartilage of the hip joint is severely damaged due to osteoarthritis or other causes, regular movements such as walking or simply sitting on and getting up from the chair can be difficult and painful. The hip can be stiff, and activities such as putting shoes or socks on can become a challenge. With time, the patient can start feeling pain even while resting.
If suitable medication, changing daily activities and using devices that help with the body's support (crutches, cane, and walker) don't help relieve symptoms, patients can consider a hip replacement surgery. This procedure is safe and effective, will relieve pain, increase mobility and help in resuming daily common activities.
