According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 4 may develop hip OA in their lifetime. It's been estimated that total hip replacement surgeries will grow by 174% by 2030.
There seems to be a connection between previous trauma and increased risk of hip arthritis as well. Meaning, those of you who have already had a sports or other injury to your hip could have increased chance of developing arthritis. Some common symptoms include pain with standing, walking, or stairs and transitional movements like getting out of bed or out of a recliner. Pain or stiffness in the hip after prolonged periods of sitting, standing, or laying. Noises such as grinding, popping, or cracking. Pain that shoots into the groin, hip, thigh, knee, or buttocks. Sometimes you may notice yourself walking like a penguin with a lot of side to side movement. This is walking pattern that decreases stress on the hip and the surrounding musculature. Often there is a loss of motion with movements like rotating your toes inward and bringing your knee towards your chest.
