osteoarthritis

Avatar m tn The regular arthritis pain increases gradually when the patient is walking and prevents walking altogether after about 15 yards. The grabbing pain is additional to the regular pain. The only relief for the pain is sitting. Lying down, getting up, standing, walking, twisting, reaching, any movement may cause the grabbing pain unexpectedly. It seems to radiate from the spine across the top of the hip and down the right leg.
Avatar n tn Everyone develops arthritis as they age. Being overweight definitely puts more stress on your hip joints, but there are strengthening exercises that can be done. A chiropractor might be able to help as well. Sometimes hip pain can be a symptom of lower back problems. Hope you get your answers.
1388332 tn?1285350047 Weight resistance and muscle building exercises can really help reduce hip pain from osteoarthritis.

Perfect form is essential so if you're new to weights, get some help in the form of a trainer for a couple sessions or even a book. "Weightlifting for Dummies" is an outstanding easy-to-read resource.
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 n tn I read your comment online concerning Hip pain and after walking disappears, I work IT and in good shape not overweight but for a couple of months I figured sitting might be the problem, maybe because I am sitting on a wallet, anyway did you ever figure it out because I start off walking from a meeting looking 70 but in a short distance I am moving like I am 30, thanks in advance for any input James
Avatar m tn This ball-socket joint is one of the largest and most important joint of the body. The causes of chronic hip pain is arthritis. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and traumatic arthritis are most common reason for the pain. Or damage of lower body in an accident leading disability. The surgery is recommended by a surgeon and consultant on the basis of the pain and not by the age, but most of patients are between 50- 80 years.
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 f tn - Porous cansicum plaster - I have since been told I have hip bursitis from a rheumatoligst, and he gave me 6 costizone shots in one day, 2 went in my hip bones, 2 went in my back bones, and 2 in the butt bones, The cortizone needles didn't work at all... and the rhumy doctor ended up saying to me: I have too many problems... He was one of many doctor's that is confused on how I have all this going on and it's like i'm a puzzel still to this day..
15502615 tn?1440998653 Range-of-motion and stretching exercises can help maintain flexibility in your joints and preserve good posture. Proper sleep and walking positions and abdominal and back exercises can help maintain your upright posture. Most people with ankylosing spondylitis don't need surgery. However, your doctor may recommend surgery if you have severe pain or joint damage, or if your hip joint is so damaged that it needs to be replaced.
Avatar f tn Have had pain in LEFT gluteus for past year treated with 2 steroid injections for trachanteric bursitiis and one steriod injection for piriformis syndrome (before MRI) with no effect. Have had PT and left hip capsule injection for osteoarthritis in attempt to eliminate pain. Had PRP injection in April with no change. Pain worsens with walking, lifting, stairs, and gardening - all part of my pre-pain life. Recently had s2 days of RIGHT hip pain (mid buttock) but generally right side is quiet.
Avatar f tn The arthritis of which they speak is osteo-arthritis, not rheumatiod arthritis which deforms joints in hands, arms, and legs. Osteoarthritis of the spine can cause bone spurs that put pressure on nerve roots causing pain, numbness, and other sensation. Arthritic facet joints of the back can be very painful. Treatments include physiotherapy, injections, pain medication, and surgery in cases of severe spine disease. Please write your questions and take with you on your visit to her doctor.
Avatar n tn Osteoarthritis, Ligament damage, Meniscus damage or Patello-femoral disorder. If you give little detail regarding your symptomatology it will helpful in discussing further. When did your pain begin, what were you doing at the time, and what were the initial symptoms? Do you experience any grinding, locking, catching, or giving way of the knee? Are there any positions that make your knee more or less comfortable? What is the quality of your pain (sharp, shooting, dull, etc.)?
Avatar f tn Four years ago I was dx with osteoarthritis of both knees. Dr. said that I was walking "bone on bone" and that eventually I'd probably need tkr in both knees. He advised using glucosamine chondroitin which I've done and for awhile it seemed to help. I was able to increase my exercise a bit and was walking more with less pain and swelling. In the past few months pain and swelling has increased which I attributed to less exercise and some weight gain, about 4 or 5 pounds.
Avatar n tn Walking can be excellent exercise! Water aerobics are great for arthritis, too. Tai Chi is another recommended exercise. You can look at the arthritis foundation web site to find programs in your area designed for arthritis patients.
987762 tn?1331031553 This pain is usually caused by people walking with an uneven gait (manner of walking). The gait of a person with MS can be affected by: Spasticity of the leg muscles Lack of coordination Balance problems (caused by disturbance in proprioception) Numbess and tingling in the feet, which cause you to be off-balance or lose coordination (also called sensory ataxia) Fatigue Muscle weakness Foot drop In addition, if you rely on a cane or walker, this can also throw your gait off.
Avatar f tn But my right leg is a little bit shorter than the left leg, and the muscles in my right thigh are smaller and somewhat atrophied compared to the muscles in m left leg. My x-rays show some early osteoarthritis in my right hip, and my right hip is pretty deformed and flattened out on top. I struggle to remain active. I too enjoy working out - weight lifting, hiking, cycling, etc - but it can be pretty difficult to do on some days.
Avatar f tn You will really benefit from some professional rehab therapy from a specialist who will teach you several exercises. You can't lean them on you-tube. This will be the best money you every spent.
Avatar f tn Maggie, I really feel for you. I just was diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the right hip and severe degeneration of my back disks at L5/S1 - which is where I had a herniated disk in the 90's. I know what it feels like to wake up and wonder if I'll be able to straighten up and walk. And the pain that comes with walking is SO exhausting, that I have rest after a few hours of doing whatever I'm doing. I don't know how you are managing to work with this.
1395999 tn?1280382228 Thank you so much, I was feeling like my surgery just worsened my condition, I did physical therapy for 2 months and I still continue to doing the exercises the therapist told me to do, I was doing acupuncture and that helped me a lot, (I think I might have to go back to doing acupuncture) and I'm doing swimming exercises/therapy once a week.
Avatar f tn Started noticing issues today too after being seated at my desk for a couple of hours straight. I have been told my legs have hyper reflexes but I also have osteoarthritis and bone spurs in my hips so I do not want to jump the gun and increase my Baclofen. I only take 5 mg of Baclofen at night for my arm spasticity and it seems to do the trick for now, even though my neuro is ok for me to up it incrementally to 20 mg if needed.
Avatar m tn If you have access to a health club or have home equipment, you should do leg-strengthening exercises — especially those that exercise the quadriceps, hamstrings, and muscles of the hip area. Damaging exercises include high-impact exercises, aerobics, and jogging long distances, especially on hard surfaces. I suggest walking and the use of cable or free weights. Start with no weight and gradually work up to heavier weights.

488264 tn?1226523907 After many years of having my hip and groin pain dismissed by doctors as osteoarthritis, I have finally found a good neurologist. I am female early forties, and in the space of a few years gone from being extremely fit to walking with a cane and needing daily morphine to enable me to move. I've now had most of my back and brain MRI'd, and although I didn't get detailed resutls, found out a few things.
1415174 tn?1453246703 So, I am at a loss right now other than doing the walking and stretches. I have some strengthening exercises like the bridge, ball against the wall squats, the clam (lay on your side, knees bent and lift the bad side (knee) up). I am trying to go slower this time. I am thinking of getting an opinion from my PT that didn't hurt me but I don't if he will do it without me letting him do a physical. I am actually too weak to do the exercises he had me start with last time.
1207048 tn?1282177904 The sharp stabbing pain I had in my right foot *might* be tendinitis. It makes sense because the pain started after a day of lots of walking, a good amount of that walking was uphill. It is also my right leg that has had the pain in the muscle behind my knee for months, so I'm pretty sure my gait is effected by that. If I'm walking weird it stands to reason I'm going to make things worse. Once I stayed off my feet for a couple days the stabbing pain went away.
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 Hi was just reading about your back and I have the same trouble , am full of osteoarthritis and just had a thr a month ago but while my hip is fine it's my back that's the problem, walking ,doing dishes , getting out of bed in the mornings etc and my lower back gets to a point were my legs won't work and I stiffen up completely , the doctors just keep upping my morphine but am going to a chronic pain clinic next week so I hope they will look into it more .
1033336 tn?1252509731 Following then onwards, I have experince pain trobbing at the back, in between the joint of knees, in between the hip joint, upper and lower both of the legs, at the joints of the arms, in between fingers, at the palm of hands and feet. Am i suffering from fibromyalgia? Do i need to do a full body check-up for diagnosis?
1415174 tn?1453246703 I had a MRI of lower back and bone scan before injury #3 and it was totally normal. I had a hip Xray after injury 3 and it was also normal. After injury 3 I can cross my left leg over the right knee while sitting but not the same as the right side. When I try, the muscles in the left buttock are very tight and I get increased pain in the injury area mentioned above but it doesn't last into the next day.
Avatar f tn I'm 20 years old and have been told that I have got degenerative discs with instability of my lower spine and a suspected herniated/slipped disc. I have had this back problem since I was 17 and have now been told that I may need a fusion to stabilise my spine and also surgery to free my trapped nerve causing my sciatica down my leg and to my foot and toes. Would you recommend I go ahead with this fusion and surgery or would you recommend other types of treatments?
