The act of rising.
Groin and upper thigh pain Groin and upper thigh pain are common complaints at the chiropractic coalface. Femoro acetabular impingement syndrome and hip dysplasia are not infrequent causes.
I have had cause to stop and ponder the significance of these discomforts recently. First it was the privilege to give a lecture on hip pain to a group of healthy students. Six out of 24 had quite serious groin and buttock issues.
In I did a locum in Holland where a great many of the patients are elderly. A fair proportion have had total ball and socket replacements. The number of people suffering from very painful sacroiliac joint, side of the hip, groin and upper leg pain is quite staggering.
Disturbed nights, difficulty walking and considerable anguish are the order of the day. Most of these conditions need exercises, care, and on going treatment no matter which professional you consult.
Certainly an operation is not necessarily the cure you were hoping for. Interestingly yesterday I met a urologist of about my age; he told me that he spends his time trying to persuade older folk to expect and accept some problems, and not look to surgery to cure them.
So, upper leg pain is a very common complaint at the chiropractic coalface; sometimes there are strong radiological signs, but often they are disconcertingly minor, and written off as an incidental finding.
Just as important as that seen on the radiograph are the physical findings. If there are gross changes in the range of motion, whether the patient has pain or not, degenerative changes will develop with time if exercises are not started.
These deformities limit the movement, often when pulling the knee to the opposite shoulder, with pain in the groin; and untreated are the precursor to premature degenerative changes in the hip. What is surprising is how very small pincers seen on x-ray can cause such a marked loss of flexibility in the hip, even in young people; the medical community thus write them off, but I believe them to be very significant; stiffness comes first, often unrecognised, and pain only later.
Groin and upper thigh pain are frequent symptoms, and together with stiffness of the hip and loss of internal rotation, and other movements depending on the deformity, are the signs of an impingement syndrome.
True, the pain recedes much faster than healing occurs, and so the 50 percent less pain rule applies, but she is ecstatic. It also stresses the sacroiliac joints so is a useful part of the diagnostic examination.
You can do it at home. Hip dysplasia Hip dysplasia causes the hypermobility that also results in groin and upper thigh pain, and often severe tenderness of the inner adductor muscles.
Even worse are the femoral nerve lesions from the upper lumbar spine that radiate to the side of the thigh, groin and upper leg. Hip dysplasia must be differentiated from hypermobility without osseous abnormalities; the latter is not a precursor to arthritis, but it still causes upper leg pain.
Most common of all, in the elderly, is a severely fixated sacroiliac joint. Cases of intermittent claudication can also cause groin and upper thigh pain; a blocked artery in the pelvis limiting the flow of blood to the leg.
Only smokers seem to get it. Like angina, they only get the ache when exercising. Oh, and two hip replacements that have been a total disaster consulted me in that one month in Holland. To succeed with these conditions, I have found that only by working in the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joint and in and around the hip joint is what relieves the pain.
A lifetime of gentle hip exercises is a must. Use the search function in the navigation bar to find more information about all these conditions.
The two common conditions causing groin and leg pain, both are pre arthritic, are hip dysplasia and femoro acetabular impingement syndrome. The former, hip dysplasia, has too little coverage of the ball with the result that the range of motion is greatly increased.
The range of motion is decreased; in fact it presents very like hip arthritis, but in the young person.
Both, untreated, lead on to premature hip arthritis.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today announced a new comprehensive plan for tobacco and nicotine regulation that will serve as a multi-year roadmap to better protect kids and significantly reduce tobacco-related disease and death.
