What exactly is Hip Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative type of arthritis that occurs most often in people 50+ years old. In osteoarthritis, the cartilage in the hip joint gradually wears away over time. As the cartilage wears away, it becomes frayed and rough, and the protective joint space between the bones decreases. This can result in bone rubbing on bone. To make up for the lost cartilage, the damaged bones may start to grow outwards and form bone spurs. Osteoarthritis develops slowly and the pain it causes worsens over time.
