What does it mean when your hip makes a popping noise?

I did a split for cheerleading and my hip made 5 popping noises kind of like how when you crack your knuckles.
Anyways, it hurt imidiately after and for a few days after it still hurt to just walk.
Now, nearly a week later it still hurts a little to walk & it hurts realllly bad to stretch it. I can't even touch my toes.
Does anyone know what I might have done to my hip?
& I'm not old.
I'm 17.

What do you think of girls with tattoos on the lower back or lower hip?

I want to get a small tattoo on the lower hip and one on my lower hip. Do you think that will look nice or tacky?
Should i just get one of it or both?

I have a small lower back tattoo. It was my first, (of 10) and to this day it hold special meaning in my heart! I see many butterflies and other kind of unoriginal tattoo's there and that personally looks bad. My tattoo is my name the way my dad wrote in on my first Birthday card. He always had my back and loved me so I got it on my lower back. Its personally up to you though... I don't think they look trashy as long as it is small and respectful!  (+ info)

I want a tatoo on my hip with a cool symbol for christianity. Any ideas?

Also, I want it on the side of my hip, not the front hip bone. Does this area hurt worse than others and will it look cool there with a bikini on?
Ok, I don't want the usual cross/dove type tatoo, but something really interesting and unusual that represents the suffering that Christ endured for my sins.
Thanks Paige, thats a great idea!

how about a dove  (+ info)

How involved is the surgery and recovery for a broken hip?

My 86 year old grandmother had a fall last night and broke her left hip. I'm not sure which kind of fracture it is, but I've read that both kinds require surgery. Are these considered major surgeries? What is the recovery like for them? She has already gone through major open heart surgery just a few years ago with a very difficult recovery. I don't want to see her go through something like that again. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks!

When I was 50 I fell off a kitchen chair while I was cleaning off the top of the refrigerator.I fell about 4 feet and landed on my right hip.I totally knocked the wind out of me.I ended up going to the ER and having it x-rayed.It showed I broke my hip.They felt I was to young for a new hip and didn't want to give it to me,so they stuck 3 titanium screws in it to hold it in place.Older people have a harder time because their bodies don't repair themselves as they did when they were young.After they repair a hip,the first thing that they do,is make you get out of bed and start you walking on walker.This is so you don't get any blot clots forming.They also put me on a medication called cummindon,it's a blood thinner to prevent clots from forming which can be very dangerous.The side effect of this is that your always cold.In addition they give you a morphine pump.It's painful,I was in the hospital for 5 days.After wards,they had me have a visiting nurse stop by my home weekly,they also had a physical therapist come too,about 3 times a week.They give you exercises that you have to do to make a come back.It wasn't easy,it took me a couple months,at that was at the age of 50,Your grandma has a long road ahead,to be honest,some older people don't really make a come back.They either end up staying on walker or even a wheel chair.When you get older especially in women,your bones get thinner and brittle refered to as osteoporosis.It depends on the break your grandma had,sometimes they repair the ball and socket or sometimes they put in the screws like I have.At any rate,I hope this helps you.  (+ info)

What natural remedies would you recommend for slipped disc- and hip joint pain?

Have had a slipped disc and as I get oder the pain never really goes away. I don't want to use conventional NSAIDs as I had nephritis twice as a child. Now I notice I'm also getting a pain in my hip joint when I lie on it. I'd like to know if there are natural remedies that work for relief of chronic pain.

* Lie on your back with your knees bent. Keep your back in a neutral position — not overly arched and not pressed into the floor. Avoid tilting your hips up.
* Cough to activate your core muscles. Holding the contraction in your abdominal muscles, raise your hips off the floor.
* Align your hips with your knees and shoulders. Hold this position and take three deep breaths — or for about five to eight seconds.
* Return to the start position and repeat. For a challenge, try alternately extending one knee while maintaining the bridge position.

This actually works. Breathing and alignment plus the movement is an excellent home remedy. Hope this helps. Good luck.  (+ info)

What is the chief source of nervous supply to hip joint?

Innervation of hip joint comes from branches of femoral nerve (nerves to rectus femoris and quadratus femoris), branch from obturator nerve's anterior division, and articular twigs from sciatic nerve. Branches from these three major nerves (femoral, sciatic, obturator) nerves also supply knee joint. That's why sometimes pain from knee may be referred to hip and vice versa.

My question is, which one is it? Is it femoral, sciatic or obturator nerve that gives the most supply (innervation) to hip joint?


the hip bone is connected to the, leg bone. the leg bone is connected to the, foot bone........  (+ info)

What is the best way to quicly heal an injured hip flexer?

For a month now after playing soccer my hip has been injured
I have track now and it is painful to run on it.
Is there any treatment that does not require a doctor that
could fix my injury?


I would strongly encourage you to see a physio. You can seriously aggravate an injury if you continue to put strain on it without giving it time to heal. Depending on what is injured you can take yourself out of doing any sport for 3-6 months or more if you're unlucky and noone wants that.

There is no surefire way to heal an injury unless you know exactly what is injured, is it muscular pain, or is it bone pain for example. It may be just a muscle strain, or it might be a micro-fracture (I doubt this highly though). The point is, finding out what your problem is, is the first step.  (+ info)

How would you know if you have dislocated your prosthetic hip joint after hip replacement surgery?

I just had a hip replacement 2 months ago and slipped getting into my truck. I felt a pull on my left side(where i had the hip replacement) and not sure if i dislocated it or not

"Hip dislocation is usually accompanied by a pop or noise, and by pain the groin and/or buttocks. The affected leg will feel and look either much shorter or occasionally much longer. The foot may be rotated either outward or inward. Patients are often unable to bear weight or walk on the affected hip. A hip dislocation is not life threatening but should be treated promptly.

Dislocation is confirmed by x-ray. If the hip is dislocated, it is usually reduced (put back into position) under general anaesthetic This procedure is called a closed reduction; a surgical incision is not required. Usually, you are released to go home that same day.
Very rarely, the hip cannot be relocated by closed reduction and an open reduction is required. The procedure is done through an incision and requires a few days in hospital."

By all accounts, if you actually dislocated you would KNOW it. It would likely be followed by a 911 call, a trip to an ER in an ambulance, and being placed under anesthesia so the joint can be reduced.  (+ info)

How do you get rid of abscess in an already closed hip piercing?

My hip piercing has healed over, but inside of the scar i can feel abscess. How do you get rid of it?

Visit your doctor.

Your doctor will be able to drain any abscess and give you antibiotics/care directions for the area.

DO NOT try to lance the abscess yourself.

It is possible that what you are feeling is just the tissue trying to heal itself. Since you cannot be sure on your own, see a professional and have it taken care of.

In the future, NEVER remove an infected piercing. If a piercing is irritated and must be removed, it needs to be carefully cleaned while it is closing so you don't end up in this situation again.  (+ info)

How long after a hip fracture can you lay on your side to sleep?

My Mum has fractured her hip (had pins put in) and is very uncomfortable sleeping on her back. We wanted to know if anyone has had the same experience, how long it usually is before sleeping on her side is safe?

Right away. It's just really painfull. If she doesn't like pain, I suggest she waits till it doesn't hurt. Good luck.  (+ info)
