What Causes Hip & Knee Pain?

There are a number of conditions that may cause or contribute to knee or hip pain. Some of the most common include:

  • Osteoarthritis: An age-related form of arthritis, osteoarthritis is caused by the normal wear and tear of the knee joint. As the cartilage wears out, bones can eventually rub together causing inflammation and pain.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: Also known as inflammatory arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis can result in inflammation and thickening of the joint capsule and destruction of the underlying cartilage.
  • Post-traumatic arthritis: This form of arthritis is caused by a wearing out of the cartilage in the joint after a physical injury.
