Hip Arthritis Ongoing Care

The pain and stiffness of hip arthritis can be eased through exercise and physical therapy. Regular exercise strengthens joint-supporting muscles and improves flexibility.

A physical therapist can suggest appropriate exercises to improve range of motion.

Aquatic therapy is an option if you have medication conditions that might limit traditional exercise.
