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...
So, you have hip pain, but the X-rays and MRI are normal. Now what? Now your doctor may want to consider that you might have hip impingement, formally known as Femoroacetabular Impingement . Considering the anatomy of the hip joint as a ball and socket joint , this diagnosis is really not surprising because some bones just do not fit together perfectly to form a perfectly symmetrical, precise joint. The hip joint is a ball and socket joint. Sometimes the ball is not perfectly round and sometimes the socket is too deep. A shallow socket is considered hip dysplasia which is different than hip impingement. Hip impingement literally means that there is abnormal friction producing abnormal wear within the hip joint. If the ball has an abnormal bump, then this is termed CAM Impingement which wears out the dome of the ball as is rubs against the socket. If the socket is too deep, then this is termed Pincer Impingement which wears out the neck of the femoral head as it rubs against the rim of t...
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.
That said, what you describe could be any number of issues. There's simply no way for anyone to explain why this is happening...
