Hip Osteoarthritis can show up anywhere in the body, just like Tendonitis can.
And really, it's the Tendonitis dynamic that is the cause of osteoarthritis of the hip.
A Hip Replacement surgery is the long term predictable outcome of Osteoarthritis (OA) pain, so you DEFINITELY want to no only keep the hip problem from getting worse, but you might as well make it -better-!
Lucky for you, keeping things from getting worse will be making things better at the same time.
You will find out all about what causes osteoarthritis on the Causes of Osteoarthritis page.
But since this is the Hip OA page:
I recommend that you don't let it go that far or get that bad. The mechanism is absolutely reversible. Obviously, the worse it gets that harder it gets to reverse the mechanism and to heal.
Hip Bursitis is also a common factor that goes along with osteoarthritis at the hip.
Why? Because tightness causes all sorts of problems.
Hip Osteoarthritis is NOT caused by too much exercise, repetitive use, etc.
Osteoarthritis of the hip IS caused by too tight muscles that can't function optimally because there is too much tightness, and of course there's inflammation and some nutritional issue playing a role as well.
Any osteoarthritis hip problem is going to result in hip pain, and lots of it.
Hip osteoarthritis is on of the major causes of Hip Pain.
Obviously, not everyone gets osteoarthritis of the hip. Why did you?
There is no exact science to answer that question.
Everybody is different. Every body is different.
Everbody's lives are different. Everybody's nutritional intake is different, their bodys deal with that nutrition differently, they move differently, the body works differently.
For whatever reason, you're feeling it your hips. On an individual case by case basis, YOUR reasons can be identified. But for the moment, let's just go with 'you have hip osteoarthritis'.
Any osteoarthitis hip osteoarthritis included is predictable. There's really no mystery to it once you know why it's the way it is (It's a bummer that it's a mystery to your doctor...).
So the question is....how bad is your hip? Do you just have hip pain? Do you just have ache and tightness? Or do you have actual damage to the hip joint? Do you have scar tissue build up and cartilage degradation?
Hopefully it's just the first of those, while it's just pain or minor damage. That's all reversible.
The worse the hip pain gets, and the more damage there is, it's STILL reversible but will just be harder/take longer to reverse. But it's doable.
As I said above, even bone on bone hip arthritis is reversible...though obviously that takes some bigger guns to fix.
Doctors will tell you that hip replacement surgery is a 'treatment'. I disagree, I assert that surgery is evidence of a complete failure to be able to effectively treat an osteoarthritis of the hip issue.
To Hip Joint Surgery
Accupuncture may help with symptoms but isn't likely to fix an actual tendonitis and/or arthritis issue.
Deep tissue massage from a skilled massage therapist is a great option.
Chiropractic isn't likely to help this issue.
Ultrasound isn't likely to help at all.
Stretching and strengthening and physical therapy may or may not help, depending on where you are at with it and the specific causes of your hip joint pain.
Anything that will help Hip Tendonitis will help osteoarthritis of the hip joint(s).
I will create a Reversing Hip Osteoarthritis ebook if enough people show an interest.
Until then, here's the basic guidelines that follow from the question 'What Are The Causes Of Hip Osteoarthritis?':
That's an overly simplified but complete self treatment plan.

Hip osteoarthritis is preventable, and is treatable. Don't let anybody tell you different.
