Common Questions and Answers about Yoga for osteoarthritis of hip


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.
1388332 tn?1285350047 My PCP referred me to an ortho and I was diagnosed with trochanter bursitis. Trochanteric Bursitis is the medical term for for bursitis of the hip. The Bursa in your hip is the largest in the body. Of course you know that Bursitis is the inflammation of a Bursa. It's very painful but treatable. Usual treatment begins with ice, NSAID's and rest and similar non-invasive treatments. If these fail an injection of steroids into the area if usually effective in relieving that pain and symptoms.
991524 tn?1249345393 Hello, I'm 33 and have a labral tear in my right hip and have been in varying degrees of pain for over 2 years; I've tried many things such as PT, yoga, pilates, strength training, steroid injection, and chiropractics. Chiropractics has been the most helpful. The tear is not healing itself, and I've been told that osteoarthritis and hip replacement will be accelerated if I choose not to get a repair. So, I'm having the surgery next week.
5902149 tn?1376880960 You must rule out an underlying condition called femoroacetabular impingement, or FAI, which could be exasperated by overdoing it in yoga, possibly unknowingly grinding the hip bones with the potential of causing joint damage and later developing osteoarthritis. So please look up FAI and see if this makes any sense.
Avatar m tn You haven’t provided enough details about the symptoms so it will be difficult for me to provide a detailed answer. Basically, the source of your hip pain is either musculoskeletal (to do with the muscle and tendons), joint or neurological. Musculoskeletal pain can result from microtrauma in muscles/tendons caused by overuse of the muscles in the respective regions. The muscles can go into spasm and cause more pain.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am new and I was born a breach and had congenital hip dysplasia on the left side. However, over the years I have developed a popping out of both hip joints. I wore a harness for about 6 weeks after birth so that my sockets would develop into the hip joint. I am healthy now and I have been jogging for neary two years. I also lift wieghts using both my arms and legs.
Avatar m tn Of interest is an analysis of studies looking at glucosamine or chondroitin for osteoarthritis in the hip or knee did not show that these supplements slow joint destruction or relieve pain. Just be cautious - these supplements are reportedly not controlling any joint damage or deterioration that may be occurring. You will find the sites that sell these supplements raving about their healing powers - but you won't find that on medical sites.
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.
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.
1652468 tn?1302904098 As we age, many of our muscles begin to atrophy from lack of use. This is especially true for leg muscles. Weak muscles lead to increased stress on joints and for this reason, regular walking is important as a preventative measure, especially as we age. 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.
Avatar n tn I have treated it with chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, yoga, and a bit of traditional medicine. I have managed to change the pain, but not to beat it. And I don't know what causes it. For me, acupuncture helped to define exactly where the pain is. Before acupuncture, the pain was so intense that it was impossible to pinpoint it. Chiropractic solved back pain problems I used to have, but left the knee pain intact.
571337 tn?1233261897 That is the most important thing. You never should have to beg for refills and be in pain for any length of time, and you'll find it may be a hit or miss period before you try something that works for you. I take Lyrica which was amazing for me for a long time, until my back just wore itself out. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you just want to chat. You've got my support, and I wish you all the best!
1207048 tn?1282177904 Everything seems very sore and tight in that area. On Wednesday when I went for x-rays (of my ankles/ feet/ elbow) one of the x-rays she had me lay my leg straight out on the machine (I was sitting in a chair up close) and to flex my toes towards the ceiling. You would have thought she asked me to do a split, that is how uncomfortable that stretch was!
Avatar f tn i have gotten alot of good advise here. i cut hair for a living, they told me i should only have to be off of work for 2 weeks and then light duty for a couple of weeks. but from what i am reading, the recouperation sounds like its longer. any advise?
Avatar n tn Then there are so many products, havent been using anything for a while now. Just got tired of spending the money for no results... The only thing thus far that help at all is what I have been doing for my hair. I have really fine hair, that use to be just always shiny and straight... Lately it have been just thin, stringy and just dead looking.. I havent gone grey yet ( a few strands...), so I decided no more dying the hair. Still look ah...
Avatar n tn I would be sitting and all of the sudden I would get this very sharp pain in my upper (front) leg near my hip. (upper thigh area) The pain only last 1/2 min to a min. I can go a week without a pain, then it will happen a couple of times a day, for a couple days in a row. I haven't had any injuries. I am over weight, but I have lost 75 pounds. ...So I don't beleive it is weight related. I have been exercising, but I haven't been doing anything too strenuous.
522415 tn?1242941355 told me that no matter what I had to get back on the morphine for my sanity and for the pain. It is all I can do now to get out of bed. I have had 3 false heart attacks in 2 weeks time. Because of over doing on my good days. The muscles around my heart were the weakest in my body so that is were the fibromyligia attacked. May God Bless you and ask your doctor for something that is going to work because you feel like you are going in saine with the pain you are in.
2126606 tn?1346348724 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. Essentially, people will increase the amount of painkillers they are taking as their discomfort continues to escalate, but the added medication can actually make their pain worse.
748543 tn?1463449675 Then he put me in a flat plane splint that he would periodically adjust a little bit and in a few months I was pain free. I went to yoga class for a few years and wore my splint at night off and on for several years, but eventually I stopped each. He did mention that I would have a risk of developing osteoarthritis later in life in my right jaw. Forward on to 2016 and I started to notice my neck and shoulders tightening.
3197167 tn?1348972206 It is intrinsic to all cultures and can have surprising benefits not only for learning language, improving memory and focusing attention, but also for physical coordination and development. Of course, music can be distracting if it's too loud or too jarring, or if it competes for our attention with what we're trying to do.
Avatar n tn And after sitting for some time I cannot get up. Getting out of bed is bad too. You are exercising which is good. No doubt you give yourself a rest day, as too much can overwork the musles and this can make you feel stiff too. The only way you will find out if you have arthritis is by either blood tests (for autoimune arthritis - rheumatoid) or by xrays. I do find though that as I am moving about the joints do loosen up.
Avatar n tn Do you experience any grinding, locking, catching, or giving way of the knee? Grinding is characteristic of osteoarthritis; locking and catching are characteristic of meniscus injuries and osteochondritis dissecans (meniscus injuries are much more common than osteochondritis dissecans); and giving way is more characteristic of ligamentous injuries. 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 So in Apr of 1997 I had a pin put in my left hip at the age of 9. May of 1997 I had a pin put in my right hip, I was lucky enough for them to have caught that one. In Jul of 1998 they removed the pin in my left hip and over the course of that year they found that I had developed avascular necrosis (loss of blood supply to the joint) as well as early stages of arthritis. October of 1998 they did a triple osteotomy on my left hip and removed the pin in my right hip.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, I won't be able to do BOTH of those as I can't afford it moneywise {unless I win the LOTTERY} BUT I WILL be back for ONE of those times and it WILL be for 2 weeks next time. Tuck and her Hubby are NOT ONLY the perfect Tour Guides BUT are the MOST GRACIOUS Hosts and Hostess that I could EVER hope to have!!! Tuck and I have ALWAYS felt like we were Sisters BUT NOW I truly feel a part of Tuck's ENTIRE Family!!! I even got to meet one of her boys via Skype!!
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis. What kind of exercise can I do? I need to lose about 25 lbs. and I was walking but now I'm not sure if that is good for me.
Avatar f tn arthritis of big joints (you have hip joint involvement—popping or clicking sound indicates arthritis); arthritis of spinal joints-you have intense back ache on lying down; and arthritis of spine with deformity, inflammation of heart, lung and eyes. The last form is a rare form. Arthritis may begin before the actual symptoms due to simultaneous inflammation of gut and joints or it may develop later. Treating the bowel symptoms of Crohn’s disease will treat arthritis like symptoms too.
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.
15428331 tn?1440594434 It's true that I know more about my DXs than 95% of my physicians. I think that is true for several of us. It often takes a combination of medications to effectively treat a condition, not just one and sometimes not just two. It's difficult for me to offer more suggestions when we don't know your DX. Hang in there dear, we are here to support you and offer suggestions. I hope to hear more from you. Please feel free to respond to other posters.
1689663 tn?1390846960 however that works better for other pain source in my case. It's a matter of finding what works for you with a physician that is willing to take the bet approach, which in my opinion is trial and error. You may only require an additional medication with the Vicodin to potentiate it's effects. You may not require a stronger opiate but again it's all trial and error. You're right, they have no problem taking your money. It's frustrating. It's my guess you just haven't seen the right physician.
3242225 tn?1348340121 Usually the result of the natural aging process, degenerative disk disease (DDD) is a type of osteoarthritis of the spine. Hepatitis C is related to arthritis but not osteoarthritis which really implies that the joint has worn out with age. http://www.*************.
