Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis treatment hip


1378884 tn?1315509445 He found a deposit on the bone near hip as well. MRI tomorrow too. So if my hip feels better, pain goes away in foot then it may be that I have RA and Osteo which is exacerbated by the mechanical injury or visa versa. What do ya think, anyone?
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 n tn You probably need to see your physician to first make sure you don't have something going on that needs medical treatment, and then perhaps discuss a healthy weight loss plan and gentle exercises you can do.
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 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 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 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..
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 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. I had to have a THR (Total Hip Replacement) done when I was 35 years old to get the pain taken care of. I've had 2 others since then, over a 30 year period of time. (the first one lasted for 26 years.) But it's my understanding that SI Joint disease can also do this. That's why you need to get it narrowed down.
1131208 tn?1260211546 I decided to go to a new doc up here. I explained everything I had been through as far as treatment on the hip. Do you know what his suggestion was?? A FREAKIN INJECTION! lol. This one was to be done under x-ray though. His theory was that none of the other docs knew for sure if they hit the right spot because they weren't viewing it under x-ray. Soooo I had the painful injection two weeks ago and guess what. It didn't help a thing. I called the doc and I'm going back on Wednesday...
Avatar m tn 1.Femoroacetabular impingement syndrome 2.Hip Dysplasia 3.Osteoarthritis You may need to see an Orthopaedic Hip Preservation Specialist, for proper evaluation and treatment. Take care.
Avatar f tn Guess it depends on which nerve is being compromised. Hip Dr. says no problem with implant. Back Dr. says mild disc bulge with osteoarthritis in facet joints in lumbar spine, but not enough to cause this much pain. Tried PT, three sessions about crippled me. Now going to Chiropractor who is doing a combo of adjustments, acupuncture, plant based injections, ultra sound, etc. Still in pain, but hoping this will work.
Avatar f tn MRI results show that my hip joint is degenerating (early onset of osteoarthritis), I have tendonosis of my iliopsoas muscles, and grade 1 strains of my adductors and quadratus femorus. The pain is spreading from my buttock to my knee and midway up my back. I have tingling in my shins as well. There are days that I can not walk properly. I recently have had an injection in my SI joint, it did not help.
Avatar m tn This is associated with focal defects in the immediately adjacent articular cartilage of the femoral head and the acetabulum. Impression 1. Osteoarthritis of the right hip characterized by degenerative tearing of the labrum and focal defects in the articular cartilage. 2. The contour of the femoral head and the appearance of the acetabulum on the pelvis x-ray suggests that the patient is likely impinging due to both pincer and CAM type morphology.
1522912 tn?1292053850 A repeat dopplar study of the involved leg should be done to rule out inflammation of veins, lymphatics and clots in veins. A MRI of the inflamed area should be done.
233501 tn?1226478134 You hear the inevitable news that you have osteoarthritis of the hip joint. The only treatment that will relieve your pain is replacement of the hip joint…(www.hipresurfacingindia.com) This is the relentless jargon of patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the hip. The conventional hip replacement involves cutting the head of femur (thigh bone) and replacing it with a metal ball. The diseased acetabulum is replaced with a high density polyethylene cup.
3134561 tn?1342629375 Other doctors prescribe pain relievers andother pharmaceutical formulations that can be taken either orally or injected in the hip area to alleviate the pain. The treatment for hip pain needs to be directed at the cause of the problem to avoid untoward complications. Hip replacement surgery is one of the most prescribed treatment for hip problems. The goals of hip replacement surgery are increasing mobility, improving the function of the hip joint, and relieving pain.
991524 tn?1249345393 I saw a Dr in Ortho recently who suggested scoping the hip and stitching up the labrum tear (involves dislocating the hip to do it). My question...does it damage the hip to let this go with no surgery? Do tears mend themselves? Without surgery, will I reaggravate this area whenever I want to hike long distances? I also found out I have had mild hip displasia, and a fast wearing out hip joint and a larger than usual labrum from the displasia that weakened over time...
3202871 tn?1352133377 ------------------------------------- Did you have another viral load drawn at 24 weeks after end of treatment, in late May or early June? And did that 24 weeks post end of treatment VL come back UND? I ask because I am basing my response on you attaining SVR. "How long will it take me to feel normal again??" --------------------------------- The time it takes to feel "normal" again varies from person to person.
Avatar n tn Tina, I can't help you with the question of if you get osteo effects from treatment, but I can tell you that I am on Actonel along with doing treatment. I developed osteoperosis at 42 years old and before treatment. I think that based on my experience, I would say that osteo effects (I also have osteoarthritis) may come from the hcv, not the treatment for hcv. That would just be my guess.
Avatar m tn This was a marvel of anatomy I learned when my doc told me I had about 80% bone on bone osteoarthritis in my left hip. I was 49 then (53 now). The "too young for hip replacement" thinking relates to a) Total hip replacement (THR) and b) The knowledge that total hip replacements last about 20 years. A THR requires that a lot of bone be removed. This means that when the 20 year warranty is up, and they have to replace the replacement, there is not enough bone to do it easily.
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 m tn I couldn't find anything close to hip pain. I have had pain in my right hip for two days now. There doesn't seem to be any one particular occurance that could have caused this pain besides running a few miles. It just developed over two days. When I lie on my stomach, bend my knee and raise my leg and foot upward, then attempt to bring the foot and leg inward it induces acute pain. This also occurs when I am walking. As of right now, I am virtually paralyzed.
Avatar n tn Mild to moderate osteoarthritis. Right Hip: Quite marked osteoarthritis with joints space narrowing and prominent marginal ostoephytes, degenerative deformity of the femoral head also noted. Left Hip: Slightly less marked osteoarthritis joint space narrowing is also noted with small marginal osteophytes. Both Knees: slight joint space narrowing.
Avatar n tn zak acupuncture Results: After a period of treatment, pain relief, but, congenital hip dislocation still exist _____________________________________________________________________
Avatar f tn Carprofen and meloxicam are the most commonly used NSAID's. Prednisolone can also be used. If these measures fail surgical treatment with hip replacement or excision arthroplasty or femoral head ostectomy can be considered. Best.
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.
Avatar f tn Hi, I went to a new chiropractor that uses the activator treatment method. I wasn't in pain all the time, but would find that without warning my hip would give out on me and I'd almost collapse in pain. The more walking I did the more often it would happen. I am an obese woman with osteoarthritis in knees and have some lower back prob in past. She took x-rays, went over them with me, did a full history, range of motion, etc.
Avatar n tn Realy no answer till my second MRI that stated that I had Osteoarthritis in my right hip and Spine. No realy relief of pain with oa treatment to my right hip. But big news my Dr. just told me that he thinks I have PIRFORMIS SYNDROM. Look it up on the internet and you would be suprised at how much it sounds like our pain. Not so good news it that it is really hard to treat. I'll keep you informed of what my pain Dr. thinks of this diagnoses.
