Also called Spondylosis, is caused by 'wear and tear' on a joint.
Cartilage is the firm, rubbery tissue that cushions your bones at the joints, and allows bones to glide over one another. Cartilage can break down and wear away. As a result, the bones rub together, causing pain, swelling, and stiffness. Bony spurs or extra bone may form around the joint, and the ligaments and muscles around the hip become weaker and stiffer.
