FAQ

What Can I Do to Prevent Needing a Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement?

If you’re experiencing hip pain but want to avoid a hip replacement, you’ll want to look into lifestyle, medicinal and supplement options. If you catch hip joint pain early enough, there’s a good chance you can ward of the possibility of a surgical solution.

Try Taking Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Medications

You may be lucky enough to get relief from a simple over-the-counter solution: NSAIDs. Some examples of NSAIDs are:
•    Ibuprofin
•    Aspirin
•    Naproxen sodium
•    Meloxicam

NSAIDs are so effective because they block the impact of cyclooxygenase, an enzyme that produces prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are responsible for the aching and swelling you feel in your hip joint. When you block the impact of cyclooxgenase, you will lower the number of prostaglandins, and as a result, you won’t feel so much pain.
 
Avoid Stressing the Hip Joint

You will be wise to examine your daily routine for any activities that may be exacerbating the problem by twisting, straining or otherwise stressing your hip joint. For example, you may need to stop jogging or playing basketball, or you may need to abstain from certain poses in yoga or a calisthenics class.

You may need to switch to more comfortable shoes (if your high heels are causing you to walk in a way that aggravates your hip) or find an ergonomically correct chair (that keeps your knees bent at a proper 90-degree angle.

Take Joint Support Supplements

You can also start taking joint support supplements, which may help repair your injured joint and prevent further degeneration of the joint cartilage. It’s normal for your joint cartilage to deteriorate and regenerate – this cycle of breaking down and repairing is typical. However, some people’s cartilage doesn’t repair the way it should, resulting in the bone grinding against the bone, causing pain.

The following two supplements, glucosamine and chondroitin, are believed to make more cartilage building blocks available for your body to use. This is because Glucosamine is essential for the creation of glycosaminoglycan that is used to make cartilage. Chondroitin is a commonly found glycosaminoglycan used to make cartilage, and is known to be responsible for the resiliency of cartilage tissue.

While these supplements have not been proven to create new cartilage, you will be supplying your body with the necessary building blocks for the cartilage creation.

What If the Pain Remains?

If you can’t get rid of the hip pain with the aforementioned solutions, you’ll want to look into medical treatment, and that may indeed include a hip replacement. There are several types of hip replacements available, including metal-on-polyethylene, ceramic-on-polyethylene, ceramic-on-ceramic, and ceramic-on-metal, and metal-on-metal hip replacement implants. Your doctor will determine which type of implant is best for you and will discuss the ramifications of hip replacement surgery as you explore all your options, including alternatives to hip replacement surgery.
