Pain in the hip joint becomes a norm as we get older, but if the hip pain is so severe, and intense that it is affecting your daily life, then probably it is the time that you consult a doctor for the treatment.
If non-surgical treatments like physiotherapy, using walking aid or cane, have not alleviated your pain, then you may require a total hip replacement surgery. An orthopedic surgeon is a specialist in total hip replacement surgery.
In this article, we have explained the possible signs and symptoms at which you should look for hip replacement surgery as the final option.
1- Pain in hip joints:
If you experience pain in your hip right after the exercise and other physical activities then it could be a sign of hip arthritis. Most people avoid taking pain killers or using a walking aid, but that is not a long-term solution.
Pain during the night:
If you are not able to fall asleep because of the hip pain, then you should consult the doctor immediately.
If your joints get stiff and you are not able to bend while doing activities like wearing shoes and socks
3- Pain during walking:
If the pain is restricting you from walking even nearby distances then consult an orthopedic specialist immediately.
