A snapping hip can cause deep groin pain, burning in the groin, or a popping/snapping sensation that can be quite painful. It often doesn't respond to conservative treatments like rest, stretching exercises, ultrasound, or anti-inflammatory drugs. The snapping can be caused by one of three injuries inside the hip. The most common cause is a layer of connective tissue that begins on the outer side of the hip joint and goes down to the shin may catch on the greater trochanter , a spot on the top of the femur that attaches several muscles. A snapping hip can also be caused by tears in the tissue in the hip joint or a tendon may catch and snap across the femoral head. Researchers have been looking at the most effective way to treat snapping hips, relieving the pain and increasing hip movement and range of motion. One study looked at the results of a 6-8 week program of hip stretching, however, it showed that only 36 percent of the patients improved without having to progress to surgery. Anot...

NSAIDs come in prescription form (e.g. Celebrex, Mobic) and over the counter (e.g. aspirin, ibuprofen). Studies have shown that about 30% of people with some form of arthritis use over-the-counter NSAIDs on a daily basis. Many other people take a combination of prescription and OTC NSAIDs daily to manage their pain, even though long term NSAID use can lead to gastrointestinal problems and overuse can lead to drug toxicity. A recent study published in the February issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism found an association between dual use of NSAIDs and poorer health status. The study defined dual use as taking two NSAIDS, either prescription or OTC, at least twice a week during the month before the study survey was conducted. 182 patients in a managed care organization participated in the study. Of these patients, half had either rheumatoi...
