New Jersey Hip Pain and Treatments – How MAKOplasty® Can Help

By | November 18th, 2013|Patient Care|

Are You Living with Hip Pain? Understanding Common Causes of Hip Pain If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from hip pain from degenerative joint disease (DJD), there are treatment options available that can enable you to maintain an active lifestyle and quality of life. What is degenerative joint disease? Degenerative joint disease (DJD) is a common cause of hip pain. DJD is a chronic condition affecting millions of Americans, often resulting in loss of an active lifestyle and quality of life. There are different types of DJD that may cause hip pain. These include but are not limited to: Osteoarthritis (OA), also called “wear-and-tear arthritis”, in which cartilage wears down over time Post-traumatic arthritis, which results from a severe fracture or dislocation of the hip Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an inflammatory arthritis of the joints Avascular necrosis (AVN), a condition where the “ball” or femoral head has lost a healthy supply of blood flow causing the bone to die and the femoral head to become misshapen Hip dysplasia, a condition where bones around the hip did not form properly, which may cause misalignment of the hip joint  What causes degenerative joint disease? The risk of developing symptomatic DJD is influenced by multiple factors such as age, gender and inherited traits that can affect the shape and stability of your joints. Other factors can include: A previous hip injury Repetitive strain on the hip Improper joint alignment Being overweight Exercise or sports-generated stress placed on the hip joint What are the symptoms? The most common symptom of DJD of the hip is pain, which may occur in four places: Groin Outside the hip Lower area of the back Thigh to the knee (or below) Pain from the hip is commonly mistaken for back pain, and may be treated as such until the diagnosis of DJD is made. What causes the pain? DJD of the hip is a loss of cartilage, or lining, of the hip joint. The cartilage serves as a cushion and allows for smooth movement of the hip. When the cartilage wears away, the ball-and-socket bones touch, creating bone-on-bone contact. This contact creates pain from rubbing together, swelling, and stiffness. How is DJD treated? For hip pain, non-surgical treatment options are often the first line of defense. This can include resting the hip from overuse, gentle exercise (such as swimming), or over the counter medicines to manage the pain. If your symptoms aren’t responding to non-surgical solutions, be sure to speak with your doctor. You may be a candidate for total hip replacement. […]
