How Is Hip Arthritis Treated?
Arthritis is a degenerative condition that cannot be reversed. However, there are plenty of evidence-based treatment methods that can slow the progression of hip degeneration, reduce the symptoms, and improve overall joint health.
Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic takes a conservative approach to care that focuses on first treating hip arthritis through a combination nonsurgical methods, such as:
- Physical therapy
- Anti-inflammatory or hyaluronic acid injections
- Lifestyle adjustments like losing excess weight or engaging in low-impact exercise
These types of conservative measures help countless patients effectively manage their hip arthritis and stay active. However, surgery for advanced hip arthritis is sometimes the best care approach. In these instances, our board-certified orthopedic physicians utilize the latest advancements in surgical hip arthritis treatment, including anterior approach hip replacement and minimally invasive hip arthroplasty to replace damaged joint surfaces with implants.
