  • I know you've heard this. Running and pounding (wear and tear)on these joints could produce some osteoarthritis in one joint or many.I played lots of hard tennis singles for 25 years and now I have osteoarthritis in my hips. All my friends have it.

  • Hope this helps…I am 37 and have been running all my adult life; around 15 miles a week with spurts of full and half marathon, 10-K training, as well as cycling. I had also developed the pain you describe (right over my hip bone in front) and saw an MD after I saw a shadow of myself running/limping. Diagnosis- Labral cartilage tear. This was after I was pushing through for an upcoming half-marathon…overtraining. Physical therapy- no running and no upright cycling are the only thing that will get you healthy. I was told that swimming was the best thing and I should be careful as the “scopes” that they are talking about in the hips now are only in their new/exploratory phase and it would be best to try and rehab and avoid having to have a scope to fix a full blown detachment of the cartilage. Good luck.Once a runner – now a reluctant swimmer

  • I AM ONLY 18 AND I HAVE CRONIC HIP PAIN, MY KNEES ARE AFFECTED AND SO ARE MY ANKLES. SOME DAYS IT GETS SO BAD THAT I BECOME PARALYZED... IT COULD BE JUST THAT YOU HAVE OVER DONE IT, YOUR LIGAMENTS AND TISSUE MAY HAVE BECOME INFLAMED LIKE MINE DO. THIS CAN TAKE A FEW DAYS TO RETURN TO NORMAL. IF THIS DOES HAPPEN I WOULD REST IT COMPLETLY TRY AND PREVENT PUTTING TO MUCH WEIGHT ON WHAT EVER LEG IS AFFECTED. X RAYS WILL NOT SHOW ANY INFLAMED LIGAMENTS OR TISSUES. I HAVE TO HAVE STERIOD INJECTIONS EVERY 3 MONTHS, WHICH HURT!!! A HIP REPLACEMENT IS THE VERY LAST RESORT, AS THEY ONLY LAST FOR AROUND 5 YEARS OR SO.... GO TO YOUR GP AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY, THEY MIGHT SAY TO YAKE ANTI IMFLAMATRIES OR USE SOMETHING LIKE DEEP HEAT ECT. GOOD LUCK WITH THE RUN HOPE SOMEONE CAN OFFER SOME THOUGHTS... i AM 46, FIT AND SKIP, RUN AND CYCLE A FAIR BIT... iN RECENT WEEKS MY RUNNING HAS CAUSED SOME HIP DISCOMFORT...
