Don't miss these 3 Most common signs of hip arthritis. Hip arthritis can cause:
-Groin pain.
-Difficulty reaching your feet.
-Loss of hip flexion and internal rotation.

Don't forget to take into consideration the patient's age, loss of hip extension when walking and the difficulty taking off after getting up and standing after sitting for a while.

X-rays are generally the best diagnostic image to identify hip OA and intra-articular injections can help decrease pain and help to diagnose that most of the pain is intra-articular.
