Chronic Hip Pain
August 20, 2018
Dr. Edward Garrison Benton, Jr, Orthopedic Surgeon at ARC Medical Park Tower Orthopedics and ARC Round Rock recently addressed a few of the common causes of chronic hip pain 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.”
