Rejuvenating Aged Joints

Hip pain that develops with age is more common than you might think; 50% of seniors report experiencing hip or knee discomfort. Hips are essential joints in our bodies, and as we get older they begin to deteriorate; becoming stiff and painful from arthritis or other issues. But there are ways you can make your hips feel better – there are several things you can do!

Common Joint Problems

With age comes decreased joint durability, leading to arthritis in our joints. Bone tissue is continually broken down and rebuilt as we age, losing more bones than we create. This can lead to osteoporosis, which makes bones brittle and more prone to fracture. Due to wear and tear and the loss of osteoporosis, patients could experience joint arthritis, pain, rheumatoid arthritis and fracture or dislocation as a result of a fall. Inflammation of the hip bursa, commonly referred to as trochanteric bursitis, occurs more frequently among women who are middle aged or older than men or younger individuals. Hip pain can be due to injury, pinched nerves or any other cause. 

How Can You Keep Your Hip Joints Healthful?

Consult an Orthopedic Physician

When should you visit an orthopedic surgeon about joint pain? While certain specialists are better suited to take care of specific issues than others, such as having your toenail removed by the dentist or visiting a podiatrist for extracting a molar, there are some major warning signs and symptoms to watch out for when it comes to injuries to joints.

Stability When Utilizing

– Range is decreasing gradually

Numbness/tingling and a general feeling of weakness spreads throughout your body.

Sitting in the same postures for too long can lead to joint stiffness and discomfort. Sitting with your feet aligned, pelvis in a straight line and spine straight can often make a difference. Do not cross your legs or lie “crooked” and leaning towards one side. It is recommended that you stand up and move your back and hips from side to side every 30-60 minutes.

If the cushion on your seat or car seat sofa isn’t firm and bouncy enough, sitting up could put additional strain and weight on your hips, leading to discomfort. This usually happens when you are at home working or watching television on the couch for extended periods of time.

Proper Footwear

Make sure your footwear is in excellent condition, as they can have an impact on how you walk and potentially lead to hip pain. Consider replacing insoles for shoes that are over a year old if possible; old, worn-out shoes often have less cushion than newer models.”

Good grip in shoes is essential to avoid slips and falls that could result in hip injuries or displacement.

Assistive Devices

If you are experiencing gait difficulties, consult with your doctor to see if assistance with walking is necessary. Crutches or canes are safer options as they reduce stress on joints and the likelihood of falling.

 A pelvic brace can be wrapped around the waist and along the affected hip to provide stability and help address hip rotation issues that could cause pain in the hip.

 For those suffering from painful hips or knees, an elevated toilet seat could be especially beneficial.
