1459410 tn?1285698605 Im in PT to help as well but if anyone would like to share a short summary of their story from pre-diag symptoms through successful treatment, I would really like to see how the different docs have handled your speciific case. The most effective thing Ive done on my own was recently bought an herbal cream that has capsicum in it whihc has done more than any of the other pharma routes. Its still kinda unbearable but Ive at least noticed it being somewhat alleviated.
Avatar m tn Severe pain , stiffness , lack of mobility are conditions when the hip replacement surgery should be opted. The professional surgeon and consultant will guide proper treatment options. The orthopedic surgery originates from the wartime to treat young soldiers. This lead to inventions of techniques and now there is huge development in methods of hip replacement surgery.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
15502615 tn?1440998653 I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis when I was very young and needed a hip replacement when I was 28 years old. This was in 1974 and the hip joints were relatively new and wouldn't have lasted long. Therefore, my Doctor had me put off the surgery as long as I could stand the pain. I was able to put it off another 7 years until 1981.

657653 tn?1224684306 Aside from weight reduction and avoiding activities that exert excessive stress on the joint cartilage, there is no specific treatment to halt cartilage degeneration or to repair damaged cartilage in osteoarthritis.

Avatar f tn Hi there. These symptoms could arise from the forceful pull of various muscles originating from the ischial tuberosity like adductor and hamstrings, sacrotuberous ligaments sustained during sports, trauma, other injuries, overuse of hamstrings or avulsion fracture of ischial tuberosity. it is also triggered by sitting for extended periods on hard surfaces and better known as weavers bottom.
Avatar f tn Sunchondral cysts are the result of osteoarthritis and usually go away with conservative treatment. You may need to take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and avoid activities that irritate the hip joint. Usually the damage to labrum is in form of a tear. It can happen due to injury or overuse of hip joint. Usually you will hear a pop sound or get a ‘catch’ sensation when you do certain hip movements.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your answer but I would like to know which is the conservative treatment in my case which I should receive prior to orthrovisc injection and surgery and for how long should I take the conservative treatment before I consider the other options . I would like also to know which are the precautions that I should not be doing in order not to increase my knee condition example climbing stairs , best sitting positions ...etc. Thank you for your cooperation.
1116556 tn?1345119506 Where can I find more accurate research material, should I get a second opinion, what are the probable other treatment options my ortho may have been implying? Additionally, my PT eval today resulted in me seeing, for the first time, how much my knees naturally turn inward. I now have black tape from my knees to the back of my hips in an attempt to "tell the muscles" where they should be aligning. If that bit of info helps?
Avatar m tn I have lower back arthritis and also in my neck and hip bursitis caused by lower back. I have been seeing a pain dr for 5 years and I had an ablation done which burns the nerve. Its been working for 5 years. I also have them in my neck. For my hip the pain dr does epidurals which work but for only a couple of months.
Avatar f tn There is no complete cure, although there are many options to alleviate the clinical signs. The aim of treatment is to enhance quality of life. Crucially, this is a congenital condition and so will change during the life of an animal, so any treatment is subject to regular review or re-assessment if the symptoms appear to get worse or anything significantly changes.
Avatar m tn Below is a list 18 non-drug treatments for pain. These options provide excellent pain relief without any of the health hazards that prescription (and even over-the-counter) painkillers carry. This list is in no way meant to represent the only approaches one can use. These are just some of the best strategies. If you are in pain, please try these first, before even thinking about prescription painkillers of any kind. Eliminate or radically reduce most grains and sugars from your diet.
Avatar f tn html I've learned in my 30+ years of living with spine disease that the better educated patients get the better pain treatment options. This means speaking a doctor's language, offering treatment options, and in general taking responsibility for your disease state management. Medications are never going to control your pain completely.
691719 tn?1227464499 Thanks for your advice. I had a lumbar MRI in June that reveled nothing. They did not use contrast, though, so I dont know if that would make a difference. And to answer your question, I never had an injury to my low back.
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.
587778 tn?1261400718 My doctor sent me for an X-ray and it reveal mild osteoarthritis. Well, in the last week, the are between my patella and thigh began to hurt badly, along the outside of my knee hurts all the way up into my thigh, on the inside the tenderness has progressed, also on the inside of my knee midway up my inner thigh I have a severe line of pain that I can also palpate. My knee and thigh are noticeably larger than the other other one. I am in so much pain.
Avatar f tn That might shed some light on what is happening and what to expect, along with some treatment options. I hope you will get the answers you need to be your personal best.
2126606 tn?1346348724 Patients who are prescribed long-term prescription painkiller treatment programs should be cautious of opioid-induced hyperalgesia. Opioid-induced hyperalgesia is a condition where the increased use of opiates, like Oxycontin and hydrocodone, heightens one's sensitivity to discomfort and reduces their tolerance for pain.
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.
941625 tn?1263585382 Does anyone else have chronic pain in this area following treatment? If so, what are your docs and you doing to treat? My doc is military and the only one so I can't seem to get a second opinion. I recently saw an orthopedics dic for a labral tear in the hip and he said it was ankylosing spondylitis but when I told the rheumo doc he said it wasn't and refuses to treat for that. I'm at a loss and miserable. Thanks y'all.
Avatar f tn But again she is in no pain she will run like that in the backyard. I don't think she has hip displasia, because I am told she would be in pain and just lie around and she doesn't do any of these things. any advice would help. Thanks.
6708370 tn?1471493810 candidate at the George Institute, added that patients should talk to their doctors and “discuss what are the best treatment options, and what are the harms and benefits. And they should be aware that this review shows that acetaminophen should not be recommended as a first line analgesic for these conditions.
9376740 tn?1403414998 He would go in and fuse it and than put two screw inside the canal on either side of the spinal cord to stop the movement of the osteoarthritis? What are the complications here. I am 69 and an old dancer still in fairly good shape, good weight, but very scared because of the tingling pain and loss of balance! Help!
1716849 tn?1308876749 But while the old pain is gone, there's still a cracking sound when I stretch it, occasional stiffness, sometimes some aching, I still can't run on it (it feels like it'll shatter), I can't kneel on it at church, and after a while at work, it gets sore and stiff, and so does my hip for some reason. It just feels so delicate - not at all like my right leg. I'd like to know what this means. For my future. I'd love to be a runner. I want to kneel at my wedding - the whole time!!
488264 tn?1226523907 I have no medical training, but I hope that pursuing inflammation as a cause to your discomfort means that some treatment options will become available to you! Is it straightforward to confirm and understand? I think that diet can influence inflammation in the body. It never hurts to give yourself a leg up by taking good care of yourself. Of course, that does mean more than 45 minutes of sleep, too. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I had the pain in my left leg to start with and that turned out to be Osteoarthritis in my left hip and I've had a hip implant back in 1981 at the age of 35 years of age. Then I suffered pain again in BOTH of my legs and that turned out to be DDD ( Degenerative Disc Disease) in my back. I've since had an RFA (Radio Frequency Ablation) where they "Kill" off the nerve endings and that last anywhere from 3mo to 18mo or SOMETIMES 24 months. Mine is still working great.
Avatar m tn I was sent away by the doctor with muscle problem, the pain subsided and I suddenly got hip pain beyond belief where I could not walk first thing. Lower back didn't feel too good and I diagnosed myself with having sciatica again down right side, I had this when pregnant so knew what it was like. I have been given some anti inflams and pain killers which worked a treat (for the pain) and its my 2nd month on them.
5901808 tn?1376380252 I've found this to be the most important relationship in my pain history. My pain psychologist has helped me with coping, with alternative treatment options, with education about new treatment options, with helping me develop behaviors that improve pain. I believe that if you don't have a pain psychologist, you're missing out on half your potential.
