Hip Resurfacing

The hip resurfacing procedure involves placing cobalt-chrome metal cap, which is hollow and looks like a mushroom, in the pelvis socket. Metal-on-metal devices are used for the hip resurfacing procedure that differs from that of the total hip replacement. The metal-on-metal resurfacing is usually not carried out on pregnant women due to the unknown impacts caused by release of metal ion on the foetus.

Stiffness in back

3 months ago, I slipped and fell in washroom and had suffered a D12 vertebral fracture. It was not very big hence no surgery or belts involved. But I did complete 1 month of bedrest. It was painful only in 1st week and later, showed any signs of pain only if i used my back for long time. All along there was sm level of stiffness involved but the doctor said it will go away as days pass. Now the problem is, every morning when i wake up find my back very stiff and it goes away after 15-20 mins and the same happens if i lie down in any position for long time. It simply becomes stiff and bending will be painful during this 15-20 mins span. I read excercises will help me. Just wanted an opinion abt how i shud go abt this problem.

Possible Back Sprain

So, I had a huge basketball tournament this weekend, and I ve played in at least one game in the last five days (on some days three) and on Sunday (the third of five) I had a sudden pain in the middle of running in my lower back on the left side. So, it was really bad yesterday (day five of five) so I sat out for most of my games, and it s even worse today. During a practice today, I would find myself randomly and uncontrollably falling to one knee and being in a lot of pain. I also had a lot of trouble running and even just walking in general. But once I stopped moving it was fine, but worse than it had been before the practice started. I looked up the symptoms for a back sprain and they match perfectly. Do you think that s it or that it ll go away? I had a similar thing happen five or six months ago to a lesser extent that went away very quickly.
