Osteoarthritis of hip joint

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis of 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 went to Shriners hospital when I was 13ish, and one of the doctors there told me that I could need hip replacements by the age of 35. I didnt want to believe him, but now I starting to realize why he said that. I also have noticed reoccurring pains in alot of my joints along with stiffness and muscle spasms. I also have weird bone growths, on my ankle, heel, toe joints, finger joints, Im too young for all this. My sed rate always comes back normal.
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 The band works together with several of the thigh muscles to provide stability to the outside of the knee joint. Bone spurs are little bones that grow out of the normal bone, this why they are called bone spurs. These then press on nerves and cause aggravation and pain. This is typical of osteoarthritis.
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 have tried acupuncture, which I thought helped some, herbal heat pack, ice, valium, ibuprofen and wear a flat-planed splint for my jaw osteoarthritis. I recently got an MRI after years of suffering and learned about disc displacement, one of them displaced all the time and it's torn. Pool exercise might help you some if they are joints that go underwater. And if you have knee arthritis, I saw on tv where I scientific study was done proving acupuncture can be a help.
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 , 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.

Avatar m tn The pelvis and base of the spine are composed of a number of bones that, like in the skull, are fused together. The base of the spine (sacro-iliac joint) can be vulnerable to both forms of arthritis, osteo and rheumatoid.
1958417 tn?1325114532 Your pain could be associated with the clip left during the previous hip surgery. This would need re exploration of the joint possibly. An old clip left would now have become impacted and exploring would cause significant blood loss. There may be early osteoarthritis changes in the joint causing pain and stiffness. Painkillers may help; intraarticular injection of steroids may be tried. Consult an orthopaedician, preferably the same surgeon who did the previous surgery. Hope this helps.
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 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 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 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 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 n tn 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. After lots of research I strongly suspect I may have a labral tear.
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 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 f tn Can you tell me if Avascular Necrosis is a form of Arthritis? If so what do you get first Osteoarthritis or Avascular Necrosis?I am 55 years old.
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 Bone cysts, which are areas of relative thinning of the bone, show up as hollow areas on the X-ray adjacent to the joint itself. A hip replacement will often be the treatment of choice if there is significant evidence of osteoarthritis.Otherwise bone grafting can be considered.In this, the cyst is scraped out with a special instrument called a curette. Donor tissue or bone chips are packed into the resulting depression to replace the fluid.
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 In the last couple of years it has gotten worse, radiating to my hip. It happens when I've been standing or walking too long, or if I'm cold. Could this be a trauma induced osteoarthritis?
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?
Avatar f tn My physio didn't say anything like that, i think i remember her saying i have some bone spurs there but not osteoarthritis, my gp's checked the x ray for another reason but they didn't say anything. My hip bone and socket is sort of narrow on one side of it. I'm freaking out about my future, there was pain before but not anymore, i'm not restricted at all other than the annoying hip clicking! I'm so scared. Now i'm having physio once a week.
