Dean Michael explains the different types of hip impingement?
Hip impingement (or femoroacetabluar impingement) is a common cause of hip problems, especially in those who play a lot of sports, either casually or competitively. Hip impingement is becoming increasingly recognised and occurs when there is abnormal contact between the ball and the socket, which results in increased friction and potential damage to the hip joint. Dean Michael discusses the two main types of structural disorder that can occur in people of all ages, including adolescents and young adults.
When we think of hip problems, many of us will have a mental image of helping an ageing grandparent into an easy chair. This cliché is not only somewhat politically incorrect it is also sadly inaccurate in most cases, as arthritis and hip related injuries are becoming ever more common in the young. Hip specialist Dean Michael explains.
Pain in the toe can be caused by many abnormalities or injuries to any of the structures in the toe, with in proper footwear being one of the most common contributors to this. How to relieve this pain?
Recovery from hip replacement surgery may depend on a number of factors. These include the patient's age, their health pre-operation, the type of procedure used during surgery and the level of aftercare with physiotherapy. Mr Dean Michael for his expert advice on recovery from hip surgery.
