Options to Reduce Hip Pain

“There are treatment options that can help reduce your hip pain," says Dr. Edward Garrison Benton, JrOrthopedic Surgeon at ARC Medical Park Tower Orthopedics and ARC Round Rock in this podcast of the ARC Healthcare Minute.

“The most common cause of chronic hip pain and disability is arthritis,” says Dr. Benton. He also explained how and why arthritis causes pain. Dr. Benton says, “With osteoarthritis, the smooth cartilage wears away and becomes frayed or rough. The bones of the hip then rub against each other, causing hip pain or stiffness.”
