Hip joint osteoarthrosis (coxarthrosis)

Hip joint osteoarthrosis (coxarthrosis)

Hip joint osteoarthrosis (coxarthrosis) — a dystrophic process, which is based on degeneration of articular cartilage with subsequent changes in bone joint surfaces, osteophyte development boundary, which leads to deformation and blockage of the hip joint.

Hip joint osteoarthrosis (coxarthrosis) affects the articular cartilage and bone articular surface.

At the core of metabolic diseases of the hip joint are a variety of metabolic disorders. As a result of such shifts change the biochemical reactions that occur in the tissues of the hip joint. As a result, cartilage degenerates, in some places destroyed, it postponed the various salts. All of this changes the surface of the hip joint and the structure of its cartilage. The main metabolic diseases of hip joint, which is known to many - coxarthrosis.

Hip joint osteoarthrosis (coxarthrosis) diagnosis

To clarify the nature of the changes in the hip joint in its osteoarthritis (coxarthrosis) is required:

  • inspection of the patient
  • complete blood count
  • X-ray of the hip
  • MRI of the hip joint
  • CT of the hip joints
MRI of the hip joint in the sagittal projection (ligaments, cartilage) when contracture.

 

Hip joint osteoarthrosis (coxarthrosis) treatment

Depending on the degree of damage to the hip joint osteoarthritis (coxarthrosis), the following therapeutic action:

  • drug therapy (NSAIDs, analgesics, hormones)
  • anti-inflammatory and local anesthetic drugs injection into the joint cavity
  • manual therapy (myofascial release and chiropractic)
  • physiotherapy (UHF, SMC, IT)
  • medical exercise
  • surgery
Osteoarthrosis of the hip (coxarthrosis) affects the articular cartilage and bone articular surface.
