Deb from Edmonton asks: What causes hip involvement in rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis can involve essentially any joint in the body with few exceptions.  This includes both small joints, such as those in the hands and feet, as well as large joints, such as the shoulders, knees, and hips.  Treatment typically is the same regardless of the joints involved.
