I was involved in a car accident last year and have had problems with my hip ever since. I have been told that I have osteo arthritis in my hip which could not have been caused by the accident and not being a stupid person understand this. However, I had no problems with my hip prior to the acccident and the arthritis has gone from moderate to severe since the accident. I believe the arthritis has been accelerated due to the trauma on my hip. I am desperately trying to find some evidence that this is possible. I have found some articles which mention that trauma can accelerate arthritis but would like to fins something more specific, Can any one help?
