Distinguishing between arthritis and hip implant failure

Posted on July 22nd, 2011 No Comments

Some people experiencing joint paint in the hip may be quick to assume that the pain they are experiencing is arthritis.  However, there is a good chance that it is actually the result of hip replacement failure.

While arthritis and hip implant failure have many of the same symptoms — including swelling, loss of flexibility, sharp pains, and tenderness — it is relatively easy to distinguish between the the causes of the hip joint pain.  If you have had a hip implant, have sought any kind of treatment for arthritis, and the joint pain persists, you are most likely experiencing hip implant failure.

Physicians usually suggest taking certain medications or trying physical therapy if a patient has arthritis.  But, if you have tried any of these arthritis treatments and they were not successful at treating your joint pain, you may want to contact a lawyer about whether or not you have a defective hip replacement.
