Bone Spur Hip

Bone spurs are common in and around hip joints. Most bone spurs in the hip are caused by osteoarthritis or other types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is caused by the wear and tear on joints over time and by trauma to a joint. The major part of the weight of your body is supported by the hip joint. This is why it is effected so often by arthritis and bone spurs and is the most replaced joint in the body. Bone spurs in the hip may also form around there the tendons meet the joints. This is cause by the tendon rubbing against the joint causing irritation to the joint. It is the wear and tear on the joint that causes the body to ad bone material in an effort to repair the weekend area of the bone causing a bone spur to develop on the hip.



Bone spurs can be caused by other types of arthritis or damage to a bone. In the process of trying to heal the injury to the bone cause by the trauma to the ankle joint the body sometimes over compensates and in the process causes calcium build up which forms into a bone spur.
