Some symptoms signaling it is time to consider hip replacement include:
- Pain and difficulty when rising to stand.
- Pain that increases when standing or walking, even when using the support of a walking device (walker, cane, etc.).
- Pain making it difficult to do regular activities, like getting dressed or sitting at your desk.
- Changing your schedule to accommodate your pain, like avoiding certain activities or not being able to go up or down the stairs.
- Pain making it difficult to sleep.
Knee pain can be caused by injuries, arthritis, lifestyle and more. It is important to see a joint specialist who can properly diagnose the source of your knee pain.
