Evaluation of Painful Hip Post Hip Replacement

Evaluation of Painful Hip Post Hip Replacement

Gait analysis, paying specific attention to antalgic or Trendelenburg gait, assessment of hip joint range of motion and pain, strength testing of the muscles surrounding the hip joint, palpation of the painful area, and other special tests as needed should all be included in a physical examination.

A pinched nerve, recurrent tendonitis, bursitis, and low back pain should all be ruled out by the doctor before any imaging or testing is done. In other cases, the cause is clear, such as a dislocation or a fracture surrounding the implant from a trauma or fall. Infection, aseptic loosening of the acetabular component, iliopsoas tendonitis, impingement, synovitis brought on by metal or polyethylene debris, pelvic osteolysis, and concealed acetabular or pelvic fracture are among the most common intrinsic causes.
