Hip Damage: the mechanism by which the hip is often destroyed and why there is often a great disparity between the perceived pain and the actual damage - as shown by the X-rays!

Frank Pio Russo - September 15, 2016.

There are a multitude of hips getting destroyed all over the world. So much so that some hospitals might resort to showing some bogus x-rays to capitalize on the bonanza of expensive hip replacement surgery. It is often blamed on "Avascular Necrosis" - however I'm herewith putting an alternate hypothesis forward! In most cases one is dealing with a sloppy joint as a result of ligament and tendon over-stretching, due to an injury of some kind that ends-up being neglected.

There is often a great disparity between how much pain the patient is actually feeling due to a bad hip joint, and how severe the injury actually looks on X-ray: to me this is indicative of a problem with the logic that the medical establishment has used in this regard! There's something amiss here that's not quite right! The hip is actually on the end of the massive thigh bone where presumably a lot of blood is actually produced via its there housed marrow... I refuse to believe that blood is being impeded from reaching the particular hip joint and thus resulting in avascular  necrosis!

A much more tenable and believable scenario is one where one suffers an injury... (e.g. some dark force knocks his ladder about and the individual damages his hip as he tumbles down)... for whatever reason he does not seek treatment for such an injury, as he may think the medical establishment is seriously after him because it is a well known fact that he's physiologically miraculous at that particular time - with no heart noise of any kind!

The injury is new and the hip damage is very superficial... yet the pain is excruciatingly unbearable on a 24/7 basis! Obviously the ligaments and tendons have been rather overstretched, and the joint reverberates all over the place as it is rather sloppy. And yet the cartilage layer is still almost intact... the real problem is that the sloppiness causes incredible pain as there is no shock-absorption of any kind. The joint of course 'never' heals because it never receives enough rest, nor does it receive enough nutrients - in most cases! And when it is finally eventually seen, the doctors do not bother to look for any soft tissue injuries... they've got the far worse diagnosis in sight which pales weaker issues! And as for orthopaedic surgeons... they've got tunnel vision: all they're interested in is whether and when they can operate! (?)

Now some 13 years might go by and the hip is "shot to bits", but a great many of the tendons and ligaments have tightened up somewhat... so much so that despite the Orthopaedic Surgeon now wanting to operate because of "bone on bone", the patient might actually have little symptomatology and is reluctant to take the "big plunge". This is because the joint in now tight and is not being bothered by every little shock as one walks around: it is no longer being shaken to bits!

In view of the foregoing, a rally-car analogy might prove very useful! A vehicle in very good conditions is fitted with faulty shock-absorbers... the driver feels very badly as he drives it - and both he and the car are being shaken to bits! Now the car quickly deteriorates and ends up in deplorable conditions. The problem is eventually rectified and new functional shockers are fitted. Obviously the situation now appears incongruous: the car is in shocking conditions and yet it behaves incredibly well!

In conclusion, I think the bad hip problem should be reconsidered... I do not think that the circulation or lack of blood circulation, is the real issue at hand.
