Could arthritis in my spine cause pain in my hips and knees?

Yes: When you have joint abnormalities in one place, you tend to compensate in other joints which then leads to abnormal wear and tear in other locations. Also, arthritis in one spot can indicate you are at risk in other places. Remain active, keep your weight down, and enjoy activity. ...Read more

I can't be certain, because there are a lot of different Musculoskeletal issues this could be.

I have si joint pain and hip pain had tests and no one knows why. On sitting I notice that my knee turns inwards lots could this be the cause?

I have si joint pain and hip pain had tests and no one knows why. On sitting I notice that my knee turns inwards lots could this be the cause?

SI joint is cause.: When one has SI joint pian, it is caused by a small but excessive roaotion forward (anterior) of the hipbone at the joint. This causes pain, irritation of other structures. Richard DonTigny, a physical therapist, developed this idea and the simple exercises. He taught me 10 years ago; i find that VERY FEW physicians are aware of the SI joint. Look up Richard on web or see: www.irwinabraham.com ...Read more

Can brown recluse spider venom cause avascular necrosis of the hip the bite was 5 inches above the knee the hip pain began 1 month after spider bite ?

Avascular necrosis is a severe form of arthritis of the hip caused by disruption of the blood supply to the cartilage on top of the hip. Ultimately leading to hip replacement. Stop gap procedures are in my opinion, ineffectual. ...Read more

Hip pain when lifting it or moving it while laying down. Hurts to lift with leg extended and when bent at knee. Cause? 17 yrs old f 208 lbs htn & pcos

Hard to say: There are several possibilities and an exam could probably determine the cause. Probably the three most common causes in a 17 year old would be a soft tissue condition around the hip such as a tendinitis, or an inflammatory condition of the hip itself such as a synovitis, or that it is a non musculoskeletal condition involving the abdomen or pelvis. Consider being seen. ...Read more
