Could be: With your back issues. This could lead to gait or walking issues. Your body will try and compensate and could cause pain in hip knees etc. Talk to your doctor. I think physical therapy would be helpful

My hip/lower back has had sharp pain when I get up/move at odd angles & aches when I walk. Thought it might be from snowboarding. Any thoughts?

Yes.: It could be from snowboarding. You may have strained the muscles in your low back and/or hip. You can try icing the area for 20 minutes at a time, 3-4 times per day, and take an anti-inflammatory medication such as advil or aleve (naproxen). If your not better in a couple of weeks, please see a non-surgical sports medicine specialist, who would be able to sort out your symptoms.

The past 2 days my left hip/lower-back has been hurting. Its super sore! It hurts to sleep on my left side, walk and when I push on it. What's wrong?

Hip or back pain: Back problems can give you hip pain and hip problems can give you back pain. Probably not enough information here to help you know what the cause is. May represent greater trochanteric bursitis. I would use an anti-inflammatory like aleve (naproxen) 2 pills with food 2 times a day for 5 days. Ice the area for 20 minutes up to 3 time a day. Think that should help.

Back sore new snow: 44 MHip and back adjustments every week 18 times. Lower back muscles temporarily very sore while shoveling snow. Do I just have to retrain those muscles? ANS: suspect you have discovered some "new" muscles you do not usually use and this will get better with more snows. AKA retraining muscles. Discuss with your back Dr tho.

I am an 18 year old female, sudden sharp pain in abdomen followed by aching in lower back, right hip, and anus.?

Acute abdomen: Your stomach pain could be due to multiple reasons. If you are active sexually, get a pregnancy test. A pelvic exam will be necessary to rule out pelvic infection. Get a urinalysis to rule out urinary tract infection. Further examination of your hip and a rectal exam is warranted.

What's causing my lower back ache and hips ache with a little cramping in abdomen?

What's causing my lower back ache and hips ache with a little cramping in abdomen?

Lumbar: Low back and hip aching at your age is commonly due to early degenerative disc disease, i.e. Wear and tear of the discs which happens to all of us due to time and aging. Generally the initial treatment for this is conservative - physical therapy, increased activity, maintaining a good diet and weight, smoking cessation, etc. Abdominal cramping is not typically associated and may be separate.

Arthritis vs sciatic: Get X-rays of hip/low back then mdi to show tissue/joint or lumbar disc protrusion. Get labs to check for low iron levels, if resultless legs. Never smoke which degenerates bones/joints plus cancer.

2 months of physio for lower back pain on left side of spine, right hip now aches constantly near groin. Massage doesn't help either.?

2 months of physio for lower back pain on left side of spine, right hip now aches constantly near groin. Massage doesn't help either.?

What comes next?: It's a good idea to have done the physio work. Now you are wondering, what next? Let's say the pain occurs all the time. It may be the physio is not helping. In such a case, an MRI of the lumbar spine or EMG test may help determine what's wrong. Perhaps the problem is worse with movement. That may indicate a need to see an orthopedic specialist. Hope that helps!

What are the common causes for lower back ache? My wife is suffering from persistent pain near left hip for last 1wk tht started radiating to her legs

Many causes: There are many causes of back pain including muscular strain, sprain of ligaments, arthritis of facet joints, herniated and degenerated discs. Radiating pain in legs occurs when nerves in the back are pinched. If pain is in hip area then hip joint also needs to be examined and possibly x rayed.
