OBJECTIVE: To determine the chronology of radiographic signs of canine hip dysplasia (CHD), specifically joint laxity and secondary osteoarthritis (OA). STUDY DESIGN: Longitudinal cohort study. ANIMALS: Paired littermates, 48 Labrador retrievers. METHODS: Conventional, ventrodorsal, hip-extended (HE) radiographs were evaluated yearly for CHD according to the subjective criteria of the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA). PennHIP screening was performed at 2 years of age to assess joint laxity by distraction index (DI).

Prayer is one kind of worship that is composed of repetitive action during praying in Islam. The prayer is performed five times a day, every Friday, bairams and death ceremonies. The aim of this study is to search the role of this repetitive action on knee, hip osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Forty-six patients who had been performing the prayer at least for 10 years, and 40 patients who had not performed the prayer, were included in this prospective study.

People with both HIV and hepatitis C are more likely than those with HIV alone to have wrist, hip, and spine fractures. We compared hip strength between HIV/HCV-co-infected men and healthy men and found that HIV/HCV-co-infected men had decreased hip strength due to lower lean body mass. INTRODUCTION: Hepatitis C co-infection is a risk factor for fragility fracture among HIV-infected populations. Whether bone strength is compromised in HIV/HCV-co-infected patients is unknown.

STUDY DESIGN: Case report. OBJECTIVE: To describe an alternative treatment approach for piriformis syndrome using a hip muscle strengthening program with movement reeducation. BACKGROUND: Interventions for piriformis syndrome typically consist of stretching and/or soft tissue massage to the piriformis muscle. The premise underlying this approach is that a shortening or "spasm" of the piriformis is responsible for the compression placed upon the sciatic nerve. CASE DESCRIPTION: The patient was a 30-year-old male with right buttock and posterior thigh pain for 2 years.

This article discusses two cases of chronic bursitis of the hip and shoulder treated by transverse friction massage. While clinical evidence has substantiated the benefits of friction massage on chronic tendinitis, previous literature has discouraged the use of friction massage in chronic bursitis. A functional examination and attention to associated biomechanical faults are also necessary for a complete noninvasive manual resolution of the problem.

A case history demonstrating a cause-effect relationship between sacroiliac sprain and a 'snapping hip' is presented. Periodic iliac manipulation is shown to eliminate crepitus elicited by simultaneous active or passive extension of the knee and hip. The significance of this case history as evidence of the efficacy of iliac manipulation in the management of sacroiliac syndrome is discussed.

OBJECTIVE: Isolated destructive peripheral arthropathy is a rare complication of Crohn's disease. We describe the clinical course and radiographic findings of such a case. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 28-yr-old male presented to our chiropractic clinic with chronic left hip pain. The patient was known to have Crohn's disease. Five years earlier the gastrointestinal symptoms resolved with a brief course of prednisone. However, the left hip pain continued. A radiograph of the left hip was read as normal.

OBJECTIVE: To present a case of conservatively managed calcific trochanteric bursitis and discuss differential diagnosis and treatment alternatives. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 53-yr-old obese female presented with acute severe lateral hip and posterolateral thigh pain. Examination findings were consistent with trochanteric bursitis and radiographs demonstrated calcific infiltration of the trochanteric bursa.

OBJECTIVE: To present a case of spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia (SED) tarda in a 14-yr-old boy. CLINICAL FEATURES: The patient suffered from chronic bilateral hip pain and range of movement was decreased. Radiographic examination showed findings consistent with skeletal dysplasia tarda. INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: The patient was given specific stretching exercises and encouragement to stay active. Physiotherapy was provided to strengthen the hip adductor muscles.

OBJECTIVES: To compare the effectiveness of a spinal (suboccipital) stretching technique and a peripheral stretching technique. DESIGN: Clinical cohort study. SETTING: Macquarie University Centre for Chiropractic Outpatient Clinic. METHOD: A reliable hand-held dynamometer was used to determine the end point of range of motion (ROM) before and after the application of a treatment. Three groups of subjects were treated: cervical stretch, hip stretch and sham/placebo. ROM of the hip in flexion (straight leg raise) was used as the independent variable.
