My Appt. Was at 10am so i showed up at 930 to feel out paperwork. To my surprise I had x-rays done in the same building before I saw the physician. The radiology team was fast and thorough. When it was time to see the phyician he had my x-rays at Padalecki is down to earth and approachable physician. He took time to listen to my concerns, and answered all my questions. Highly recommend DR Padalecki and his staff to anyone in need of a orthopedic specialist. What I thought was going to be 3 or 4 office visits and surgery turned out to be 1 visit and no surgery.
I have some info. I developed this same ileopsoas tendinitis two weeks after left hip and two weeks after right hip replacement. The surgeon denied it could be the hip causing this. He sent me to a rheumatologist and low back surgeon, wasting my money. He is considered the best surgeon in the state! He got so frustrated with me. The pain became so severe I could barely walk. I was in misery. Finally, he put cortisone in the trochanter bursa and the pain went away in a couple days. When the same pain occurred after the second hip, I got the cortisone. I have also tried cortisone directly into, by ultrasound, the tendon. That did not work any better than just doing the bursa. So every three months for five times each hip, I got cortisone. I went to PT and stretching made the pain severe and debilitating. I also had several dry needling from the PT which did nothing.
From the abstract: “Among all the factors tested, endurance of the back extensor muscles had the highest association with LBP. Other factors such as the length of the back extensor muscles, and the strength of the hip flexor, hip adductor, and abdominal muscles also had a significant association with LBP. It appears that muscle endurance and weakness are associated with LBP and that structural factors such as the size of the lumbar lordosis, pelvic tilt, leg length discrepancy, and the length of abdominal, hamstring, and iliopsoas muscles are not associated with the occurrence of LBP. ”
