What You Should Know About Hip Replacement
The hip joint may become severely worn and damaged due to conditions such as:
- Arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and septic arthritis
- Bone dysplasia that causes the bone to grow abnormally
- Hip fractures
With hip replacement, the entire hip joint is replaced with an artificial implant that’s designed to mimic the natural movement of the body. While a hip replacement will not fully restore your optimal mobility and range of motion, it will dramatically improve your ability to get around and significantly reduce your pain and discomfort.
Hip replacement is never considered as a first line of treatment for hip pain. It is only considered when the joint has been so badly damaged or worn away that it is causing nearly constant pain and significantly impacting a patient’s mobility.
After hip replacement, you will need to work closely with a physical therapy to begin restoring your mobility and rebuilding your strength.
