Case study 1

Its been a while so I thought I’d start 2013 with some recent case studies.

This is a 70 year old lady.  A patient of mine who I treated for neck pain. About 12 months ago she had a hip replacement.  She recently had some hip pain.  After a while she decided to go to her GP and he ordered some Xrays.  I bet she is glad that he did. As you can see by the xray the replacement cracked in two.  This just proves that prosthesis are not fool proof.  No trauma was had, she could walk,  it just broke!  She was admitted into hospital that day.  Apparently she was the star of the show in the hospital as this was a first for many of the surgeons.  Her daughter tells me she is now doing well…
