Osteoarthritis hip dysplasia

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hip dysplasia


Avatar n tn Hello Dear, How old are you? Has there been a previous surgery? Congenital hip dysplasia is due to the abnormal hip joint socket articulation. The harness is recommended for minimizing the impact of the problems and the subsequent symptoms. Less mobility or flexibility on one side is a typical feature of Congenital hip dysplasia. Chronic abnormality at the joint would lead to undue pressure and prone for osteoarthritis. Surgery is unlikely of any great help.

Avatar n tn I'm now 27 years old and am suffering with chronic hip pain. It first started in 1995 on my right hip- saw an orthopaedic who said the growth plate in my hip hadn't closed yet and that was causing pain. In Sept. 07 the pain returned, but in both hips. The top of the illiac crest is tender to touch, but the joints in the front of my body directly under the hip bones are whats bothering me. The orthopaedist sent me to a physical therapist who thinks its possibly a labrum tear. But in both hips??
Avatar f tn 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. I'm at my wit's end trying to know what it is, and what I can do about it, as I've had it for so long. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the response. His x-rays show no sign of hip dysplasia.

Avatar f tn i have had a couple friends tell me that it looks like he has hip dysplasia, but i cant afford to take him to the vet to get him checked out. i have looked up hip dysplasia online and it says it genetic but his father is in great shape, as far as i know his mother was also in great shape. his brother as well has no problems. he has taken after our female dog in size, slender but muscular, but has a big head.
1295500 tn?1272463527 Glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM are good supplements for maintaining joint health, but they are not curative substances. Your dog could be suffering anything from simple arthritis; to hip dysplasia; to a pulled muscle, tendon or ligament; to a ruptured spinal disc; a tumor or cyst in a bad place; or any number of other issues. She's obviously in pain, so get her to the vet as soon as possible.
Avatar n tn I have a pit bull with hip dysplasia who has been on rimadyl. During the winter time he seems to be in more pain than usual. Should I also be giving him tramadol? What exactly is the difference between the two medications?
1310633 tn?1430227691 Does anyone have any experience with, or heard of, Adequan, Cartrophen or Cortisone shots for the treatment of pain associated with hip dysplasia, osteoarthritis, etc, in dogs? My English Mastiff has developed osteoarthritis in her right hind leg, and surgery isn't recommended this late in life, and an alternative to oral treatment (and far more effective from what the vet has told us, although MUCH more expensive), is shot treatment.

1388999 tn?1370046414 Deramaxx is a cox-II inhibitor like human Celebrex that worked the best for my dogs with osteoarthritis and one with hip dysplasia. Rimadyl is cheaper and worked fine for early symptoms but once they reached 10 or 11 years of age it just wasn't as effective. Tramadol (Ultram) is a pseudo-narcotic that can be used for pain in dogs. It's mild enough that most vets don't have a problem dispensing it for home use. You won't know until you ask your vet.
931217 tn?1283484935 [83,84] Hip dysplasia is a developmental abnormality of the hip joint that can result in arthritis and clinical discomfort. It is rare in small breeds, with rates of affected dogs less than 1%, but it can be seen in as many as 40%-75% of large breed dogs.
Avatar f tn My previous Dr never treated me like a drug addict, but my new PCP is pushing me to wean myself off all analgesics and wants me to use subutex. I have an incurable, but not fatal, rare bone disease [polyostotic fibrous dysplasia], spinal myoclonus, degenerative C 5,6 disc Dz, osteoarthritis of knee, cluster HA's, & daily HA's [? a side effect of analgesics]. Multiple pain issues.
Avatar n tn As a 34-year old mother of 3 with osteoarthritis in both hips, the lower back and left knee, along with mood swings out of control, this drug has done wonders! The best part is that there is no weight gain side effect. In fact, I've started to lose weight again. I also started kickboxing around the same time and it has helped with the mobility of my hips, as well as helping me feel more energetic. I actually enjoy exercising and find myself working out at least 5-6 days a week now.
