Osteoarthritis hip bursa

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hip bursa

osteoarthritis

Avatar n tn When I was 33 I got my first bursitis (right shoulder). The chiropractor said the bursa are like gelatin ball-bearings in the shoulder, and when one pops, the surrounding muscles become inflamed. Now 10 years later, I have it in both shoulders, and pain when I walk, in my left arch and right ankle. 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?
Avatar f tn maybe a car accident, or you hit your hip on a sharp, hard corner or you fell on your hip... it is inflammation of the fluid-filled sac (bursa) that lies between a tendon and skin, or between a tendon and bone... so RA or osteoarthritis can increase your risk of development... I had it on my leg after a car accident and after physical therapy for it I finally got through it... the bursa was absorbed by my body is what the doctor told me... it hurt like fire burns!
1388332 tn?1285350047 Have you checked with your Doctor at all concerning this pain in your Hip? You might be encountering the beginnings of Osteoarthritis in your Hip Joint. I've lived with that for the past 36 years. I've had 2 hip implants and I'm getting ready for a third in September. It would benefit you to make an appointment with your PCP (Family Doctor) and see what they think and depending what they discover from possibly some x-rays go on to either an Orthopedic Specialist or a Rheumatologist.
Avatar m tn Hi, The symptoms of severe pain that you are experiencing may be due osteoarthritis or degenerative disease of the spine. The treatment of osteoarthritis includes exercise, medications and measures to protect the joints. This includes a teamwork of rheumatologist, physical therapist and orthopedic surgeon. Please consult an orthopaedic surgeon and rheumatologist for treatment and continue the physiotherapy at the same time for the relief of the symptoms. Hope this helps you.
Avatar n tn I have tried the usual treatments, chiropractic, acupuncture, physio with ultra-sound and cortisone shots in the bursa and in the hip joint. The cortisone shot in the hip joint helped me with sitting but after 7 weeks have found the effects are wearing off. I have had a catscan which showed some back problems but pointed to the hip as the possible cause of pain. The MRI of my hip showed mild arthritis and some deterioration of the labrum.
Avatar n tn I have had severe left hip pain for over a year now but now it has also moved to my right hip and groin area please someone help???
Avatar n tn I've had it and the pain has knocked me off my feet. The hip contains the largest bursa in our body... when inflamed the pain can be absolutely excruciating!! However you do not mention tenderness in the hip area which usually goes along with Bursitis. 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.
Avatar f tn I started with right hip pain 14 months ago and no one can find what is wrong and everything they do causes more pain . I am to the point now I do not know what to do. I am 62 and originally I lifted something heavy off the counter and carried it to the basement. Thought then it was sciatic and took ibuprofen 800 3 times daily and went to the chiropractor. Nothing helped. Went to an orthopedic and he did an mri and I suggested therapy and wearing a belt. He agreed and I Started therapy.
Avatar m tn Joint problems can be caused by arthritic conditions (like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis for example) or bursitis (inflammation of bursa). Bursa is a small fluid-filled sac lined by synovial membrane with an inner layer of viscous fluid. It provides a cushion between bones and tendons and/or muscles around a joint. This helps to reduce friction between the bones and allows free movement.
Avatar m tn A bursa is a fluid filled sac that allows smooth motion between two uneven surfaces. For example, in the hip, a bursa rests between the bony prominence over the outside of the hip (the greater trochanter) and the firm tendon that passed over this bone. When the bursal sac becomes inflamed, each time the tendon has to move over the bone, pain results. Because patients with hip bursitis move this tendon with each step, hip bursitis symptoms can be quite painful.
Avatar m tn This was a marvel of anatomy I learned when my doc told me I had about 80% bone on bone osteoarthritis in my left hip. I was 49 then (53 now). The "too young for hip replacement" thinking relates to a) Total hip replacement (THR) and b) The knowledge that total hip replacements last about 20 years. A THR requires that a lot of bone be removed. This means that when the 20 year warranty is up, and they have to replace the replacement, there is not enough bone to do it easily.
Avatar n tn If you do some research on the internet, you can find out exactly where the bursa is in the hips. The bursa is on the outside of the hip joint and if you press on that particular spot and it is extremely painful to your son, that could mean that he also has bursitis. My daughter also suffers with this. She got this from running a mile in platform sneakers in school. I was very upset with her gym teacher for allowing this. She did go to physical therapy and the therapy has really helped her.
Avatar f tn Do you have any associated condition such as osteoarthritis or femoroacetabular impingement wherein there is much friction in your hip joint, and it puts you at a greater risk of a hip labral tear Exercises to maximize hip range of motion and hip strength and stability can help to improve symptoms Consult your physical therapist who can analyze your movements which you perform that put stress on your hip joint. This would help you relive and avoidstressful forces.
Avatar n tn Realy no answer till my second MRI that stated that I had Osteoarthritis in my right hip and Spine. No realy relief of pain with oa treatment to my right hip. But big news my Dr. just told me that he thinks I have PIRFORMIS SYNDROM. Look it up on the internet and you would be suprised at how much it sounds like our pain. Not so good news it that it is really hard to treat. I'll keep you informed of what my pain Dr. thinks of this diagnoses.
Avatar m tn Advanced osteoarthritis of the lef~ hip is of uncertain etiology, but likely associated with bone on bone apposition, resorptive reformation, and complete maceration of the anterosuperior and superior aspects of the labrum.
Avatar f tn It's called Trochanteric bursitis - which is inflammation of the bursa (fluid-filled sac near a joint) at the outside (lateral) point of the hip. The hip has the largest bursa of our body. However it could also be from your lower vertebrae or your SI Joint. If you could verify and add a bit more info we may be able to offer better suggestions. Most (not all) sciatica doesn't travel into the ankle. I'll look forward to additional information from you. I wish you the best. Take Care, ~Tuck.
Avatar m tn These pains can generally be in a lot of places but the most common areas I get them are in a hip joint on the side of my butt that I can touch and it will hurt. If I stand on one leg awkwardly it will hurt. Also get them in my feet. Almost anyway on the foot, balls of my foot, heal just below the skin, arch of my foot, top of my foot. Another common area is at the very top base of my quadricep. So when I lift my knee it will hurt and be very difficult.
Avatar n tn The deposition of boney material can be from immune reactions arising from a systemic disease such as osteoarthritis, use that induces wear and tear on the spinal column, infections of the spine, autoimmune processes such as SLE, rheumatoid arthritis. Anti-inflammatory medications can reduce the build-up of new boney formation and surgery can remove old already formed osteophytes. The location of your osteophytes would not cause your headaches per se.
Avatar n tn i was diag with AS 20 yrs ago, recenlty started having hip problems went to bone dr had mri found hip tendonitis he said, well the other hips started doing same thing but on the outside of the hip ,so my md has sent me to and RA dr also as now im having a severe burning in my arms then my shoulders hurt at same time OMG so bad, i feel as if sometimes my hearts racing and i have shortness a breath, ive never had this befor i have allways been very active until about 5 months ago when all this
488264 tn?1226523907 They did the whole pelvis, but as this clinic is a pre-surgical clinic for potential hip and knee replacement patients the whole picture was not assessed, just the parts relevant to them. It was clear from my first seeing them some two years ago that I was nowhere near needing a hip replacement, but that is their only criteria for seeing me.
Avatar n tn Since I've had Fibromyalgia, I have constant bursitis in my greater trocanter (hip bursa) as well as a constant inflammation of my SI joints. I receive shots in my hips every few months, sometimes monthly. I do the exercises given to me by my DO, however, I have only short term relief from the shots. I apply ice. I still have the bursitis and it won't go away. I never had any hip injuries prior or since to cause bursitis. Does anyone else have recurrent bursitis with their Fibromyalgia?
Avatar n tn Since a surgery I had 2 years ago to fix an iossue in my hip joint I have hd nothing but joint pain, in both hip - told I need both replaced, in my spine - feels like the bones are 'hitting' each other and in shoulders - crunching like you describe and major pain in a/c joint - also had rotator cuff injury - yes it's reallyu miserable. I have been from Dr. to Dr. and they cannot really tell me why this has happened when i used to be so healthy.
Avatar n tn I had been previously diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the same hip, but imaging continues to show a decent amount of cartilage remaining. This seems to be more soft tissue related, it is hard to say. Many have posted similar symptoms and a few have posted some remedies, technical descriptions of problem etc. I would encourage anyone who has posted and has since found relief or improvement to please re-post the details of your progress. Thank you!

Avatar n tn Hi Dear Synvisc is used to relieve knee pain due to osteoarthritis (OA). It is approved for those patients who do not get adequate relief from painkillers such as acetaminophen, or from exercise and physical therapy. Synvisc is injected directly into the joint to restore the lubricating properties of normal joint fluid. The therapy is generally well tolerated. However, it may not work for everyone.
Avatar f tn ) Now that we've cleared that up, the thing that makes the most sense to me is some issue with the prepatellar bursa. Usually the bursa will swell when irritated, but in our case it doesn't seem to be happening. My theory is this: we have all injured our prepatellar bursa at some point. I know I've landed on my knees numerous times and gotten the typical water on the knee.
Avatar n tn I get ligament problems in my feet, achillies and knees and I thihnk sometimes my hip pain is more tendon that joint pain. I had physio thereapy to teach me how to walk in a way that did not make certain joints worse and to strengthen some muscles to reduce the strain. I had inserts made for my shoes which where great although I didn't continue my prescription for them as I also have ADHD and I'm rubbish at doing important things like that. The therapy helped a lot but I still have pain.
211940 tn?1267884866 The Causes of Shoulder Pain Defined Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa. A bursa is a tiny fluid-filled sac that functions as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body. There are 160 bursae in the body. The major bursae are located adjacent to the tendons near the large joints, such as the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body.
