In brief: Anti-inflammatory

Mild hip arthritis can often improve with a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as well as physical therapy to focus on pelvic strength, range of motion, and flexibility.
In some cases an intra-articular steroid injection can help if therapy or medications do not help.

In brief: Therapy , Cane

Physical therapy to improve motion and strength in the area of the hip would be helpful.
Using a cane in the opposite hand would help relieve weight on the hip and hopefully relieve some pain. Anti-inflammatory medication are also sometimes helpful.
