Dr. Danielle Jones answered
Obstetrics and Gynecology 8 years experience
Measuring Tape: Waist to hip ratio is determined using a flexible measuring tape to measure circumference of the waist at its narrowest point, typically just above belly button, and circumference of hips at their widest point. Waist measurement is divided by hip measurement and this number represents waist to hip ratio. Values over 0.8 for women and 0.9 for men have been associated with various health risks.

How can artificial hips stand up over time?

Dr. Stephen Daquino
Sports Medicine 21 years experience
Depends...: Artificial hips are getting better all the time but are not as tolerant as a real hip. The metal and plastic parts wear out over time. Younger patients (under 50)are usually more active and will wear out a replacement and need a revision at some point. Most surgeons will opt to do it when the patient is healthy enough for surgery, but old enough to not wear out the implant. Avg 15-20+ yrs on most.

A 38-year-old member asked:

I've been diagnosed with overactive hip flexors and am a dancer, what should I do now?

Dr. Shane Miller
Specializes in Sports Medicine
Flexibility/Strength: Flexibility and strength are very important, especially for dancers. If you are having pain or an injury related to your hip flexors, you might want to work with a physical therapist to learn a good stretching and core/hip strengthening program. You may want to work with a Pilates instructor if you aren't injured, but only have tight hip flexors, as Pilates is excellent for dancers.
