Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis x ray hip

osteoarthritis

I am 26 and have had joint degeneration in the facets of my cervical spine that has been visible on x-ray since I was 19. I just recently found out about this when I got another x-ray done, and the findings stated it was compared to an x-ray from 2002 which showed degeneration. Why didnt any one tell me? My doctors just said my x-rays were normal, but how can this be normal for someone that was 19 at the time?
But he recently had a second x ray and his right hip is badly damaged so he will possibly need a hip replacement in the near future (he had the first x ray 5 years ago). He basically has Osteoarthritis. But since last Wednesday he's been in alot of pain. But the problem is with his left hip rather than his right, he cannot understand it. He's been off work in agony, he's got pain in his left hip, buttocks, thighs, knee's and shins, basically what appears like Osteo in his left hip.
Once my ring finger knuckle hurt for a year. The doc said the X-Ray showed no knuckle between the finger bones. Is this a case of disappearing joints? I've tried glucosamine chondroitin and shark cartilage but I can't see any noticeable improvements. Is there any way to resolve (aside from pain killers and drugs that have unknown or risky side affects)?
Hi a year ago I visited my GP with left hip and upper thigh pain. He sent me for an X-Ray which showed early arthritis changes. He sent for a course of Physiotherapy which I attended for 6months. In the end I stopped going because after the initial mild improvement in pain there was no further improvement. I am taking 1500mg Glucosamine Sulphate + 1200mg Marine Chondroitin + 1000mg Omega 3 fish oil daily.
After having a surgery to fix on particular problem that left me with a whole different problem I went to three other osteo docs. They all advised me to have hip replacement due to osteoarthritis, but I didn't want to do that without trying every other avenue. I recently had a 'live blood analysis' and discovered a tiny organism called 'mycoplasma arthritides' was responsible for my problem. I was told that a trauma like my surgery couild have triggered the organism.
Yes, I have degenerative disk disease throughout my spine. I also have osteoarthritis. I haven't had a fracture in that hip as far as I know. I have bulging disc's at C3-4, a fusion at C4-5 with cadaver bone & titanium plate and screws, a bulg at T8-9.wiwth a hemangioma noted, and bulging disc at L4-5. I also have lots of foraminal and central stenosis. I have never had my knees x-rayed, but imagine changes there too.
I recently had an x ray done on my right hip and they think there is a clip left behind from a previous surgery in there. I have been getting the pain for 2 years now and it was only when I sit on the floor for more than 5 min. but now it's getting worse, I get the same pain and stiffness if i sit in a chair for a long period of time and walk and stand for a long time. I dont know what can be done for this and I am not getting any answers from my providers yet.
Could the AVN be progressed to a point that bad enough to hurt that bad yet not be seen on x-ray? He mentioned that it may look like I have a labral tear on my x-ray...what is that and is it something to be treated because he mentioned it like it was nothing. I'm so frustrated. Thanks for listening!
Bone cysts, which are areas of relative thinning of the bone, show up as hollow areas on the X-ray adjacent to the joint itself. A hip replacement will often be the treatment of choice if there is significant evidence of osteoarthritis.Otherwise bone grafting can be considered.In this, the cyst is scraped out with a special instrument called a curette. Donor tissue or bone chips are packed into the resulting depression to replace the fluid.
Did they did an x-ray or an MRI on your hip? If they di some tests, what were the results of them? If your Doctor didn't do anything then it might be time to find another Doctor to get a 2nd opinion! Sometimes you have to get 2nd or even 3rd opinions before someone is willing to (as Tuck puts it) "think outside of the box"!
I have played many sports and had minor injuries. I will have to wait for the x-ray resullts because I am in a remote area and they read tests once evry 2 weeks or so. In the meantime I am wondering if these symptoms are indicative of this and what you would suggest I do to releive pain and if there is any over the counter medication that would help?
Since your pain is increasing I think you need some imaging studies like x-ray or MRI to determine a diagnosis. I've got osteoarthritis in my hips and it is a BEAR when the weather changes. I was a ballet dancer and like you, very flexible. That flexibility means we have long ligaments and tendons, which also means we have weak joints. The bones take on more of the job of supporting our bodies than soft muscle, tendon and ligaments do.
If you have chronic knee pain in both of your legs then rule out osteoarthritis or other joint problems like Rheumatoid arthritis and other systemic diseases. Go for an X-ray and follow up with an orthopedician for a proper diagnosis. Take care!
My physio didn't say anything like that, i think i remember her saying i have some bone spurs there but not osteoarthritis, my gp's checked the x ray for another reason but they didn't say anything. My hip bone and socket is sort of narrow on one side of it. I'm freaking out about my future, there was pain before but not anymore, i'm not restricted at all other than the annoying hip clicking! I'm so scared. Now i'm having physio once a week.
I agree with Priddy44 with waiting for labs - definitely have to r/o RA....OA most likely would have shown up on xrays....MRI of hips/sacrum/lower spine would also help...you mentioned you've had the pain for a week but have you ever had it before? Did it come on suddenly without notice or injury or was it gradual? No falls/injuries/over-exertion type activities? I hope you're feeling some relief soon!
Can you have osteoarthritis pain recur AFTER a hip replacement? I have had both hips replaced (THR); the first 16 years ago and the second 7 years ago. The first hip is still doing fine -- hardly know it ever happened. However during the past year the second hip has become quite painful: pain felt in the groin (as hip pain often is) with bending & rotating the hip joint, much like before surgery.
I think it's important that you contact your treating physician. An x-ray of the hip will rule out or in any bone changes due to the osteoporosis. If basically negative (other then osteoporosis) they can search for other causes. I wish you the best. Please keep us updated and feel free to share additional information.
I think you should make an appointment to see a orthopedic spine specialist or psysiatrist (not psychiatrist). Hopefully, they will order some tests (X-ray, CT scan, MRI) to get a look at what is possibly going on. X-rays and CT scans don't always see what is going on as the resolution isn't great (X-rays being the worst). An MRI of your lumbar spine would definitely show if you have signs of degenerative disc disease.
This month, when I saw my orthopedic surgeon for a 2 year follow up, the x-ray of my natural hip showed some changes. My surgeon glanced at the x-ray and said I was developing cysts on the ball of the femur. There is also a bone spur on the neck of the femur. According to my surgeon, these changes are early signs of arthritic changes in my hip. I am willing to believe that, but I do not understand how he can determine the cause of the changes in my hip by just glancing at the x-ray.
Make sure you take the anti inflamatories with food as they can do damage to your stomach. If it comes back then have it checked out by a Dr. if you have insurance, x-ray, blood work for RA factor, CRP and Sed rate.
This is associated with focal defects in the immediately adjacent articular cartilage of the femoral head and the acetabulum. Impression 1. Osteoarthritis of the right hip characterized by degenerative tearing of the labrum and focal defects in the articular cartilage. 2. The contour of the femoral head and the appearance of the acetabulum on the pelvis x-ray suggests that the patient is likely impinging due to both pincer and CAM type morphology.
they actually treat u with non invasive procedure mainly anti inflammatory medications as a first step of treatment depends exactly on ur pain source and cause. they do some MRI, X-RAY and EMG tests for diagnosis. they treatments starts from giving u kind of shots and/or radio frequency in ur back to minimally invasive procedures as disc decompression or intra discal thermo co agulation, etc..
I was allso thinking osteoarthritis which my dad and uncle have and they both had symptoms at an early age,but my doctor has done a blood test in november2010,and just did an x-ray of my hips and lower back and said that there were no signs but i really believe it is. Becase I have only been having the pain for almost two years i was thinking that it might not show damage yet on the x-ray!
Standing AP pelvis and frog lateral bilateral hip: mild joint space narrowing left, moderate right. On standing Xray there is less than 2mm jointspace (Philippon criteria) and decreased femoral head/neck junction offset. On the same chart notes, there was a radiologist's interpretation of the Xrays: Findings: The visualized osseous structures are intact without acute fracture or focal destructive lesions. There is periarticular sclerosis and spurring involving both sacroiliac joints.
Finally, after years of making limited progress a chiropractor decided to test me for a leg length discrepancy. He said the absolute best way is a standing X-ray without shoes. Sure enough I was off by 10mm. Now, other therapists measured me for a leg length discrepancy, but could not identify one. As soon as I was corrected for the leg length issue the pain dissipated. Within a week I was exercising at full force. However, this wasn't the end of my ordeal. My pain returned.
A few months ago, I started having low back and left hip pain that persisted. My dictor finally ordered an x-ray then an a MRI as a month of PT was no help at all. Tests dud show degeneration so he said it is age related, I am just 64. Different PT and they have been basically doing heat and ultrasound, no improvement and I now have pain across lower back, over both hips and a burning pain on the right side of my mid back. I am also going for acupuncture but nothing is helping.
) It's pretty easy to see bone deterioration in the hips on an x-ray, so I'm thinking it's unlikely they've missed much, if anything. When the ball of the hip joint wears down, it will indeed feel like it's slipping or not quite in place. The pain may come and go depending on her activity level. My thinking is that the surgery in the left hip made subtle changes in the way she walks, which in time led to damage in the other hip. This is not at all uncommon.
I'm 24 years old and have been suffering from hip pain since August of 2008. After having an MRI, X-ray, and MRI with Fluoro-contrast, I was told I had a labral tear and fragmentation. I was also told that I had a FAI, and that the femoral head would be reshaped during the arthroscopic surgery (December 2008).
I saw my GP 3 months ago, who put me on a list to see an orthpaedics specialist. I had an X-ray of my hip Monday this week, and when I saw the consultant in charge, the hip seemed ok but told me that it had mild dysplasia. He also noted that the joints in my hip were very hyperflexible. For around 2 months I've had a lot of pain in my hip, sometimes crampy and sometimes really sharp, and it hurts even more with my periods.
