Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.
Leg pain can range from a mild nuisance that comes and goes to a debilitating pain that makes walking, sleeping or engaging in simply everyday activities difficult. Some people experience leg pain as a soreness or aching feeling, some feel it as a burning sensation, while others experience a pins and needles tingling with numbness and weakness. Many people are not aware that most often their leg pain is caused by a problem in the lower back. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are the trusted leader when it comes to expert treatment for leg pain.
