Dr. O'Connor describes hip arthritis.
Arthritis of the hip is basically when the cushion space in the hip joint has worn out and that can be because you injured your hip when you were younger, it could be because you were in an accident, and it could just be because you are getting older and our joints wear out as we get older.
