Osteoarthritis hip joint

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hip joint


Avatar m tn Hi there! Osteoarthritis refers to degenerative arthritis (inflammation) of the joint. Management is largely dependent on the joint involved and the severity and may range from conservative to surgical/ joint replacement. You could read more about the condition online. Hope this information is helpful. Take care!
673877 tn?1225995294 Can you define "bad hip" in a bit more detail? Does your rottie have osteoarthritis or hip displaysia? In either case, I would go with rimadyl or deramaxx as an anti-inflammatory/ pain relief medication. For any joint issues, MSM, glucosamine and chondroitin can help the soft tissues of joints stay healthy longer. These substances won't repair already damaged tissues, but can keep them going longer. Have a talk with your vet about dosages for your rottie.
1175033 tn?1492204828 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?
1378884 tn?1315509445 In a nutshell, osteoarthritis is wear-and-tear on the joint. It can happen at any age, not just to "old people". It can be brought on by an injury, a congenital deformity, overuse in a sport or job. RA is a malfunction of the immune system in which it mistakes joint tissue, mainly the cartilage, as something that must be attacked and eliminated. This causes the typical swelling, redness, heat, and over time, damage that causes pain and disability.
405614 tn?1329147714 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.
Avatar m tn Sorry to hear that you can't get an allowance for your ill health and the pain you are experiencing. Bones spurs growing on your joint is osteoarthritis. I have it on my bad knee. I saw the xray of my knee and could see the cartilage had worn away in part of the knee joint and I could see a little spikey bone sticking down. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, only a replacement of the knee joint if the condition is severe.
Avatar n tn 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.
1459410 tn?1285698605 I did cortisone shots, medication and ended up doing a joint replacement in my left hand (at the thumb joint), which failed. Nine surgeries have followed along with getting RSD, probably from so many surgeries. I've been in PT, OT and now pain management. I also get different procedures done and am on a ton of pain medication. I can no longer work and my quality of life has really changed. I'm still processing it and still trying to learn new ways to do things.
Avatar m tn Yes, 21 is very young to be getting a hip implant, however, I wasn't much older, 28, when I was told in 1974 that I needed a hip implant because of Osteoarthritis. At that time the hip implants were quite knew and my Doctor had me put it off until I couldn't stand the pain anymore because in 1974 the implants were only good for about 5 to 10 years in someone as young and active as I was. I managed to go until I couldn't stand the pain anymore which was another 7 years when I was 35 yrs old.
Avatar f tn When you say "hip bone", do mean the bony protrusion on each side of the front of your pelvis? This isn't actually the hip joint, it's the bony arch of your pelvis. The hip joint is located on the inside crease of your groin, where your thigh meets your pelvis. The thigh bone comes up then at the top makes a sharp turn toward the midline of your body. If you feel like there's pain in your "leg crease" or groin, that's the hip joint. anyplace else...isn't.
Avatar m tn I noticed the pain when sitting down, would lift left leg up to tie my shoe. Pain was mostly on the outside of the hip joint. Never feel pain while walking or biking but have started feeling increased pain while running. One day it feels fine and then another day if aggravated just right, I feel the pain. Probably an 8-10 on the pain scale. I work as a Firefighter/Paramedic so having my strength in both hips is crucial. any help pr advice would be greatly appreciated.

1958417 tn?1325114532 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.
Avatar f tn It started with one knee, then went to my hip, then my wrist and fingers, etc. It started with 1 joint at a time but now is at least 2 and can be up to 3 or 4 at a time. It has been constant for the past 3 weeks. With the joint pain, comes swelling, some heat, and redness. I have even had the pain in my jaws! This is so crazy! I eat healthy, I am not over weight, I am active, and have never had any health problems. I don't have health insurance but I am working on it right now.
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!
Avatar n tn It can be due to arthritis(osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis),trochanteric bursitis(Inflammation of the sacs or space around the joint), Tendinitis from repetitive or strenuous activity, strain or sprain of the muscles due to its overuse or infection of the hip joint leading to necrosis. Low-back pain such as sciatica,spinal stenosis,spinal disc herniation or prolapse or fractures can also cause such pain. Without physical examination it is very difficult to make a diagnosis.
Avatar m tn I meant to add that hip deterioration is often mistaken for pelvic pain because the hip joint angles in toward the groin/pelvis at the top of the thigh bone. If you're having pain in the "leg crease" between your thigh and pelvis, that's your hip joint.
Avatar m tn The prognosis at the time was a dysfuntional SI joint. The ultrasound was not effective. I was then given an injection into my SI joint, still no relief, my pain actually got worse. I am now scheduled for another injection of my L1 and L5 this week. My wife as well as myself are concerned that this may make my pain worse as all the other injections havn't worked. I would just like to know if we are on the correct path for treatment?
Avatar f tn It is not unusual to have groin or low pelvic pain that is referred from the a joint problem. You may have osteoarthritis of the hip joint. Pain running down the leg can be from the hip or could indicate a structural issue in the spine. Only imaging of the area will provide you with the correct answers. I hope you will make an appointment with your PCP to find a solution to your pain. We will look forward to your updates. Best of luck to you and as always, take care.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am 46 yrs old, male, ex-athlete (competitive level basketball) and live in London, England. A year ago I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis on my left hip during an arthroscopy and most of the joint cartilage is worn out. Take glucosamine tablets regularly. Even though my condition is not so advanced to take painkillers etc, I cannot do any sport, which is important to me (even at a light, amateur level) and walking start bothering me after a few hundered meters.
Avatar n tn I have had severe pain in my left hip for a year now. I have had the hip joint frozen twice now and the pain totally went away so am sure it is coming from the hip and not back. The pain is a grabbing pain when I rise from a sitting position or getting in and out of the car and crossing my leg or putting on my shoe or sock is not possible. It is very uncomfortable to sit for any length of time. I am only comfortable when I sit with my legs straight out on the couch or in bed.
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 f tn 14 Months ago I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in both knees and Buritis in my hips. It came on suddenly and it is very painful. I have seen 2 specialists and have had 2 lots of steroid injections in both knees and one steroid injection in my right hip. I have been taking Meloxicam and painkillers. Today I have been to see a specialist with the view to having knee replacement surgery. After looking at my recent x rays he has informed me that I have Avascular Necrosis in both knees.
Avatar f tn It could be SI Joint related, Osteoarthritis, Facet Joint related, DDD (Degenerative Disc Disease), etc. You need to see your Doctor and have some tests run that can narrow it down. This way you can begin to get the relief that you deserve to stop this pain that you are experiencing. I had this happen to me and it was caused from Osteoarthritis in my hip. It would cause the pain to radiate down my leg all the way to my toes as you are experiencing.
Avatar n tn recently i went to a hip specialist with hip pain and he said i have a hole in my hip bone which is caused by a cyst and wants to do a hip replacement. he said if i don't have it i will be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life cuz the hole will just keep growing..
Avatar m tn I was just about your age. I was 27 when I was diagnosed with the osteoarthritis in my hip joint and needed it then, HOWEVER, back in '74 the implants were brand new and made for elderly - over 80 years old only - as they wouldn't have lasted more than approx 5 to 10 years on me. So they had me put it off and I did for over 7 years, until I was 35, and that RUINED my back because of the way I had to walk and use a cane and limped.
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar n tn It has been 6 months and the pain is constant, everyday and sometimes unbearable. MRI's on lumbar spine and left hip are negative. My pain doc is now recommending a facet joint injection. I have no history of trauma or injury anywhere on my body. I am 27 years old so its not like I have osteoarthritis. I am wondering if it is possible for the chiropractor could have damaged a facet joint?
