Hello. Thank you for posting.

The causes of osteoarthritis of the hip are not known. Factors that may contribute include joint injury, increasing age, and be being overweight. In addition, osteoarthritis can sometimes be caused by other factors:

-The joints may not have formed properly.
-There may be genetic (inherited) defects in the cartilage.
-The person may be putting extra stress on his or her joints, either by being overweight or -through activities that involve the hip.
