Diagnosis

You doctor will determine how much the disease has progressed. Describe your symptoms and when they began.

Your doctor may rotate, flex, and extend your hips to check for pain.

He or she may want you to walk or stand on one leg to see how your hips line up.

Both hips will probably be X-rayed to check if hip joint space has changed, and if you have developed bone spurs or other abnormalities.
