Coxarthrosis / Dysplasia of the Hip
An arthrosis implies that the cartilage in a joint is damaged and it may in appear in all joints. Tear and wear of the cartilage of the hip joint (Coaxarthrosis) is characterized by great pain, deformation of the joint itself and reduced functionality. The process normally takes years and implies an escalation of disability with personal, interpersonal and social consequences.
The causality of Coxarthrosis / Dysplasia of the Hip varies
- Wrong or too high load can cause wear and tear of the cartilage. The joint’s interspace emerges as narrower and narrower on X-rays.
- The quality of the individual’s cartilage (enhanced degeneration) may influence the process. Hereditary factors may also play a part in it.
- Different kinds of injuries, like bone fractures, affecting the joint and the joint’s cartilage may be the offset of a Coxarthrotic condition.
- Pathological conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis lead to degeneration of cartilage and deformity of joints, pain and reduced functionality of the involved joints.
When the Coxarthrosis is manifested tissues like ligaments and tendons may suffer and will often need treatment.
M. Gluteus Medius Tendinosis
This painful condition appears in or near the muscular attachment of two muscles on the lateral side of the hipjoint (the trochanter = the bony prominences toward the near end of the thigh bone [the femur]) . The reason is most often pure overload; either a dynamic strain from long distance running or as a consequence of a long-lasting standing work situation on hard bedding. The pain is felt over and behind the hip joint under or after considerate load. The symptoms can be confused with an inflammation of the hip bursa (see Trochanteric Bursitis and Trochanteric Tendinosis below).
Both overload and injury of the trochanter (the bony prominences toward the near end of the thigh bone, the femur) can cause Trochanteric Bursitis. The symptoms are soreness and swelling of the trochanter area and some patients experience radiating pain alongside the thigh. This can be confused with Ischialgia.
Repetitive injuries from heavy load of the tendons from the small and medium sized hip muscles can result in a chronic state of pain around the rear part of the trochanter (the bony prominences toward the near end of the thigh bone, the femur). See Trochanteric Bursitis and M. Gluteus Medius Tendinosis above.FAQs regarding Radial Shockwave Therapy and Hip Pain
