Having pain in my right knee, when I put some pressure like walking upstairs, when I situp from the floor. I feel some cracking sound when I put my hand on my knee. I have this problem for the last 1 month. But when I walk on a plan surface I do not have any such issue. I face problem only when I do some work which put pressure on my right knee.
Hello Doctor. I am having back ache for last 4months. I consulted physician and physio bt all in vain. It started from upper back now effected whole back particularly left side and even my neck. Morning time is the toughest one to bear. My shoulders are even getting thinner nd thinner thn before.
I'm lean guy. My height is 5 ft 7 inch. My weight is 52.5 3 weeks back, my weight was 50.5 but now it is 52.5 after taking endura mass weight gainer. I'm still taking that. Along with this, I want muscular body means broader body with muscles so that I'll not look lean. Can you please suggest me good protein powder and diet plan so that I can take that. One additional point is that I'm vegetarian but I used to eat white egg only. No non-veg.
Damaged hips can cause great distress in carrying out daily activities, such as walking, getting dressed and many more. If you have damaged one or both of your hips, and it causes you great pain, you may require a hip replacement. It is a common form of surgery in which a damaged hip joint gets replaced with an artificial one. This is known as prosthesis.
Conditions which lead to hip replacement
- Osteoporosis where the cartilage inside a hip joint gets worn out, and the bones rub with each other as a result
- Rheumatoid arthritis, which is caused when the immune system attacks the hip joint lining by mistake
- If the hip joint gets damaged severely during an accident or fall
The purpose of a replaced hip joint is to provide pain relief, improve the hip’s function, improve your ability to carry out day-to-day activities and improve your overall quality of life.
A hip replacement is usually carried out under general anesthesia. An incision is made in the hip by the surgeon and the damaged hip joint is removed through it. It is replaced with an artificial metal alloy or a ceramic joint. The surgery takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes for completion.
After the surgery, a walking aid such as crutches is required for up to four to six weeks. You may enroll for an exercise program, which aims at regaining and improving the new hip joint functions. Regular activities can be restored within two to three months. A year is required for utilizing the new hip joint normally.
Risks of hip replacement
There may be several complications as a result of a hip replacement. They include:
- Dislocation of the hips
- Infection at the surgery wound
- Injury to nerves and blood vessels
- Difference between the lengths of two legs
Hip replacement surgery has an alternative type of surgery, which is called hip resurfacing. During this surgery, the damaged surfaces of the bones within the hip joint are removed and replaced with a metal surface. Less bone is removed in this surgery. However, the metal surface may cause complications and health hazards.
Hip replacement is being improved upon with the advent of technology. Stronger and newer materials are being developed for prosthetics, which will allow enhanced joint mobility and a longer wear. New cement-less implants are also being developed. Also surgery assisted by computer is being used for generating an image of the hip joint. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.
