Hip And Knee Doc

Oh, my aching back, or is it my hip?

Back problems can often masquerade as hip problems and most pain from hip and back problems is due to ordinary wear and tear on the body. When the hip is the usual suspect you may experience: ~ Pain is in your groin ~ Discomfort comes and goes, becoming more frequent over time Pain worsens with standing, walking and activity, and is relieved by rest. ~ You feel stiff ~ You walk with a limp ~ Avascular necrosis, or AVN, is a serious condition marked by death of hip bone at the joint. The pain is usually worse and far more constant than in osteoarthritis.
When the spine is the likely culprit: Most lower spine problems are caused by a herniated disc that presses on nerves in the spinal column. This produces the pain known as sciatica, which can be felt in the hip. You may have a herniated disc if pain: ~ Is limited to your back, buttocks or hip. ~ Shoots down your leg ~ Worsens with sitting or bending ~ Improves when standing or walking If you have any of the above symptoms and would like to make a consultation you can request and appointment online at www.hipandkneedoc.com or send me a private message with your contact information and my staff will give you a call! ***I can also recommend several spine surgeons if you need to see one for your back.
