Orthopedic surgeons and biomedical engineers are trained to approach adolescent and young adult hip pain from two different perspectives. Surgeons typically look at conditions such as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and hip dysplasia from a clinical point of view. Engineers more often focus on the technology angle.
We often hear about pro athletes with ACL injuries. But non-athletes suffer these knee injuries, too, as a young mother from Ambler, Pa., shared with 6abc. Surgery is usually a must for athletes, who need to do cutting and pivoting moves. But non-athletes may not need it.
Knee pain can result from many conditions, including osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and sprains. These conditions can range in severity from a minor annoyance to disabling pain. Here are the best anti-inflammatory medications to help you obtain relief.
Increasing intake of protein and drinking regular cups of tea or coffee is a way women could reduce their risk of suffering a hip fracture, according to new research. Food scientists have found that for women, a 25g a day increase in protein was associated with, on average, a 14% reduction in their risk of hip fracture. In a surprise twist, they also discovered that every additional cup of tea or coffee they drank was linked with a 4% reduction in risk.
Hip bursitis is inflammation of the bursae of the hips. Treatment usually involves anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, and rest.
A person doesn't have to pack on very many extra pounds before their risk of needing a knee replacement increases substantially, a new evidence review has found.
New research has uncovered which factors are important when tracking the progression of disease in the contralateral hip of patients with symptomatic femoroacetabular impingement. FAI is one of the most common causes of hip osteoarthritis, but the factors controlling the progression of it are still not completely understood.
There are many causes of groin pain, or discomfort in the area where your abdomen meets your legs. The most common ones are muscle, tendon, and ligament strains, which often affect athletes but can happen to anyone.But other things—such as an inguinal (groin) hernia, hip fracture, hip arthritis, and even kidney stones—can directly or indirectly cause groin pain too.
Whether arising from being felled on the soccer pitch or a seemingly harmless collision with a coffee table, a minor injury to the cartilage in your knee can have major consequences. In the worst case, the weak spot gives rise to severe arthritis and an artificial knee is the only hope. However, if the problem is caught early, further deterioration could be prevented by a patch repair.
The researchers found that in men, but not in women, increasing CXCL9 levels were associated with an increasing risk for hip fracture. The odds ratios in the highest quartile compared with the lowest quartile were 10.35 (95 percent confidence interval, 1.90 to 56.39) and 1.46 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.59 to 3.60) in men and women, respectively.
