Hip pain. Can't put weight on my right leg. Extreme pain. Only 41. History of osteoporosis in my family. No trauma to the area. Outside right hip pain?

Hip pain: Hip pain can be caused by injury to the hip joint, sacroiliac joint or the low back. Often the pain arises without obvious cause. Crutches or a rolling walker can help reduce pain by limiting weight bearing. It is important to see a hip or back expert and obtain imaging studies to determine the location of the pain and to establish a treatment regimen. ...Read more

Pain in right hip joint, but don't recall twisting my leg out or any other trauma?

Need more info: In young people hip pain can be due to poor alignment between the top of the thigh bone and the hip socket, causing impingment. It can also be a tear in the labrum. More serious conditions involve poor blood supply to the head of the thigh bone, called avascular necrosis, and then there is arthritis, damage to the cartilage, bursitis and tendonitis. ...Read more

Can modulus mismatch in hip replacement be caused by trauma?

Several things: Could be a pinched nerve, a strain of a muscle, ligament or tendon, or a joint injury. If not better enough within a week, get it examined. Nothing speeds recovery, just time. Everything else is to relieve the pain while you heal. ...Read more

Family tragedy. 2 sisters broke hips around 90. Both developed rapid-onset dementia within 6mo. Was it genetic or trauma or age-related?

Family tragedy. 2 sisters broke hips around 90. Both developed rapid-onset dementia within 6mo. Was it genetic or trauma or age-related?

Hard to say: If they had surgery then that may be more of a factor then the fracture. Alzheimer's dementia is the most common type of dementia and in it conversational speech is preserved long into the illness so there may have been subtle signs before the fractures. If either one developed delirium that would also worsen cognition. For your risk, ask your primary care provider. ...Read more

I had left hip replaced due to trauma related osteoarthritis. My hip dislocated 3 weeks after anterior approach replacement. It stayed dislocated for?

R we 2 guess what?: This has no question. What are you asking? How long before it dislocates again? . It depends on what the circumstances were as well as what was done 4 it. If it was relocated & nothing else, nothing has changed & the possibility of recurrence would be high. If opened & structures tightened less so. If keeps on, needs revision. ...Read more

Shoulder pain, neck, back pain, hip pain. Xray normal except mild wedging t7, t8. A couple schmorl's nodes. Would trauma be clearly seen?

Shoulder pain, neck, back pain, hip pain. Xray normal except mild wedging t7, t8. A couple schmorl's nodes. Would trauma be clearly seen?

Maybe.: X-rays have miss rates where the finding isn't detected or can't be seen. X-rays are not very sensitive for soft tissue injuries such as ligaments or discs. MRI is more sensitive for soft tissue injury and may show marrow or structure changes from fractures. CT or nuclear medicine bone scan may show missed fractures, not seen or visible on x-ray. X-ray remains a good screening tool. ...Read more

What causes someone to feel like their right hip is dislocated?

What causes someone to feel like their right hip is dislocated?

Snapping hip: The most likely cause is a muscle on the outside of your hip called the tensa fascia latae that extend more distally to form your illiotibial (it) band that "pops" rather than glides over a bony prominence in the upper part of your thigh bone (femur). The pop/ clunk feels like your hip is dislocating. The illiopsoas (hip flexor) muscle on the front part of the hip can also produce a snap. ...Read more

I am 25 and have been having a stiff right hip since I was a teenager. How do I treat it?

Physical therapy: First have you seen anyone to determine f there is an anatomic reason for it? A stiff hip can be from stiff muscles surrounding it or misalignment in the back (chiropractor). Inflammation from diet issues can also affect. One leg shorter than the other. I would suggest a physical therapy eval, (stretches and exercises) a chiropractic eval and a visit with an acupuncturist/chinese medicine doc. ...Read more

I'm trying to stay active and fit but am getting some pain in my lower back and right hip possibly from the exercise. Suggestions?

That doesn't mean stop all exercise altogether. By all means keep doing other things that don't bring on pain but give that specific area a chance to rest & heal. Ice is also good for injuries.
