Does synvisc (hylan g-f 20) one provide pain relief for sufferers of hip arthritis?

Does synvisc (hylan g-f 20) one provide pain relief for sufferers of hip arthritis?

Maybe: Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) is an off label use in the hip. Insurance typically does not pay for it in the hip for this reason. It tends to work very well in the knee and the hip for mild to moderate arthritis although typically it is given in the 2cc mixture in the hip and not the 6cc synvisc-one mixture. It helps to recreate the normal viscosity of the joint fluid / hydrate remaining cartilage (covering on bone).

Are there any side effects from switching from supartz (hyaluronic acid) to synvisc-one shots?

Are there any side effects from switching from supartz (hyaluronic acid) to synvisc-one shots?

No: The short answer is no. As you know supartz is a five injection series. Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) one is one injection. If you are in the middle of a supartz regimen, I would not recommend a switch to synvisc (hylan g-f 20) one. Not because of side effects, but you will not be receiving suggested dose of supartz. Viscosupplimentation success is based on several factors in my experience.

What is the difference between supartz (hyaluronic acid) and synvisc-one shots?

What is the difference between supartz (hyaluronic acid) and synvisc-one shots?

Number of injections: The primary difference is that supartz is given over a course of 3-5 injections (usually 5) and synvisc-one is a single injection. They both deliver a form of hyaluronic acid and act as a sort of joint lubricant.

Is someone likely to get hip arthritis if they don't have a hip labral tear repaired surgically?

Is someone likely to get hip arthritis if they don't have a hip labral tear repaired surgically?

Unlikely: Femoracetabular impingement (fai) can lead to degenerative arthritis of the hip joint, as can other factors from childhood or adolescence (developmental hip dysplasia, slipped capital femoral epiphysis.). Isolated labral tears on their own generally cause pain, but without other anatomic factors, not deg. Arthritis of the hip.

Would septic hip arthritis when I was a baby create any problems for me in the future?

Would septic hip arthritis when I was a baby create any problems for me in the future?

Potentially: If the septic arthritis was appropriately treated the chances of long term problems are low. If you are experiencing any hip pain, x-rays and an evaluation by an orthopaedic surgeon should be able to address your concerns more completely.

What are the signs of early hip arthritis? I'm 17 & been dancing for 15 yrs lately I've had really bad pain in my hips and have to crack them alot.

What are the signs of early hip arthritis? I'm 17 & been dancing for 15 yrs lately I've had really bad pain in my hips and have to crack them alot.

See ortho doctor: Hip problems may develop from overuse, bone changes with age, tumors, infection, changes in the blood supply, or a problem that was present from birth (congenital). Oddly enough, a person who has a hip problem often feels pain in the knee or thigh instead of the hip. Pain may be a sign of inflammation of the large sac that separates the hipbones from the muscles and tendons of the thighs.

Is there an alternative to surgery for severe hip arthritis?

Is there an alternative to surgery for severe hip arthritis?

Not many: Occasionally I will see someone who has severe hip arthritis and either does not want or cannot have hip replacement due to age, illness, heart problems etc. In this situation, a cortisone injection in the hip can help for about 2-3 months at a time. It is not the best option but if there is nothing else it can help. Alsowalking with a cane in the opposite hand can alleviate the pressureon the hip.

I have pain on outside of knee. Doc says from inflamed nerve caused by hip arthritis. Should I put ice on hip or knee? Or heat?

Knee pain: You don't get 'nerve pain' from hip arthritis. This could be knee arthritis, a sprained lateral coll. Ligament or meniscus injury. Ice for 10-12 minutes 3x/day could be helpful at the acute phase (3-4 days after injury). If knee pain persists over two weeks then an orthopedist consult is necessary. Good luck.

Hi I do have sciatica for years now I have pain in my groin area only the right side like the sciatica near the public bone could it hip arthritis?

Hi I do have sciatica for years now I have pain in my groin area only the right side like the sciatica near the public bone could it hip arthritis?

Possibly: You really need to be examined to differentiate an L3 nerve 'pinched' nerve vs hip arthritis. This nerve commonly refers pain to the hip, buttock and groin. True hip arthritis causes pain in the same general area but is usually worse w/ weight bearing. Hip arthritis usually causes loss of motion (difficulty tying shoes, etc).see a board certified ORS for examination. Best of Luck!

Fibromyalgia/gluten: U are most likely an individual who has fibromyalgia in association with gluten intolerance. I would suggest that you go on a gluten-free diet and get tested for gluten allergies. Control of fibromyalgia is difficult but can be attained utilizing certain neuropathic pain medications and regular exercise. RE Case S (2005). The gluten-free diet: How to provide effective education and resources.

Knee arthritis: Start with pain control low impact activities and quadriceps strength. Try acetaminophen, or non steroidal antiinflammatory meds. Steroid injection may be an alternative. Hyaluronic acid is an expensive treatment. You need a prescription from a licensed physician to buy it.
