Inflammatory Arthritis of the Hip
This is a type of arthritis that can affect people of all
ages. It's not the same as the most common form
of arthritis, called "osteoarthritis." That type
commonly comes from wear and tear. Inflammatory
arthritis can develop without any wear and tear at
There are a few kinds of inflammatory arthritis. We
don't always understand what causes them, but
they are linked to problems with your immune
system. Your body begins to attack your healthy
tissues. In the hip joint, this can cause the
breakdown of cartilage. That's the tough, smooth
tissue that lines the ends of your bones. When it
breaks down, your bones begin to rub directly
against each other.
Inflammatory arthritis can affect your whole body.
You may have fever, you may lose your appetite,
and you may feel tired. And, it can make your hip
feel stiff and painful. You may feel a dull ache in
your groin or your outer thigh. You may feel it in
your buttock or your knee. Your pain may hurt more
in the morning, and then feel better as you begin
moving around. But it may hurt more with vigorous
activity. Your pain can cause you to limp.
Inflammatory arthritis is initially treated with
medications. Chiropractic care and Physical therapy may be of help, too. If needed, an image guided injection of steroids or stem cells would be of help. Also, blockade and radiofrequency rhizotomy of the sensory branches of the hip joint are among some advanced non surgical treatment currently offered by Dr. Ghalambor who is a Harvard Fellowship trained and Board Certified physician.
