In this study, researchers from the Gait and Posture Lab at the University of Montreal in Canada compare walking patterns between patients who had a total hip replacement versus a surface replacement arthroplasty . An earlier study by Mont et al comparing these two groups reported a slower walking speed and decreased muscle force in the hip abductor muscle of the hip. Results for the patients in the previous study were reported for six to 18 months after surgery. The effects of different implants on gait pattern were measured six to eight months after surgery in this study. The authors thought that a tighter time frame might give them a better way to compare these two patient groups. Hip joint resurfacing was introduced several years ago to help younger patients who are more active and who would likely dislocate or wear out a total hip replacement. Surgeons found a way to replace the surface of the joint without removing the bone and replacing the entire joint. Bone is saved because the...
Is your pain worse in the morning? At times, that pain at dawn is the worst pain of the day. We tend to be vulnerable this time of day because the muscles are stiff, the mind is not completely awake, the blood pressure is low, and the medications are losing their effectiveness.

A body pillow is also worth trying because it can help you avoid sleeping in a twisted or rotated position. A pillow between the knees or a pillow at the small of your waist are also worth considering; eventually, yo...
Hi good day sir/mam, I've been experiencing this pain a while now. My jaw and head hurts but only On the left side. For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with. My mother suffers with high blood pressure but there isn't any other sicknesses that I know of in the family. So can you provide me with an explanation on why this is happening to me please, i'll be very thankful. Have a blessed day! Aaron.
Two things you said might indicate Migraine:
the pain being on one side and
the pain worsening when you bend down.
Take a look at Anatomy of a Migraine for more information on the possible phases of a Migraine attack and the potential symptoms.
