Has anyone ever dislocated a hip? I feel like the ball is rubbing against the socket

in new and uncomfortable ways. I can't get it to snap back. What should I do. I don't believe in chiropractors but am in such pain at times I might be advised to go. I can walk. Just putting weight on it hurts. It feels like it wants to snap back. I wasn't really doing anything to it when it started to get 'out of joint'.

1. Ugh! That sounds awful.

Are you sure it's dislocated? Not sure you could walk if it was. Arthritis? SI joint? Ice it and rest sounds like a plan. This may get deleted for "soliciting medical advice". I've had questions like this locked. Heal quickly!

2. No I do not know it is dislocated. It feels better right now. I'll go easy on it.

Thanks.

3. I don't believe in chiropractors, either, but I do believe in doctors

Go to one right now. Even if your hip isn't dislocated, there might something else seriously wrong.

4. Applegrove, Mr Nay had that symptom, along with lots of pain. He walked strangely,

like a crab, and was diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis of both hips. He said it felt like his hips were rolling around in their sockets. The doc said that was exactly what was happening. He ended up getting two hip replacements and is now fine.

Have you considered that you may have a broken or cracked pelvis? If you are elderly, it can happen without a precipitating incident like a fall.

Go see a doc right away, if possible!

7. I kinda had that too, but only my right hip.

I was walking really weird for a long time. Found I also had severe osteoarthritis. Had minimally invasive total hip replacement end of September. I feel great now - walking up to six miles per day.

5. resveratrol may help the body repair some joint/spine related issues

so perhaps hips also...(Note- this is just speculation on my part!!!)

there might be something on pubmed.gov

6. this may be relevant - no consistent changes at the hip after 16 weeks but generally positive change

Resveratrol increases bone mineral density and bone alkaline phosphatase in obese men: a randomized placebo-controlled trial.

Abstract
CONTEXT:

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is associated with low-grade inflammation, which may harmfully affect bone. Resveratrol (RSV) possesses anti-inflammatory properties, and rodent studies suggest bone protective effects.
OBJECTIVE:

This study sought to evaluate effects of RSV treatment on bone in men with MetS.
SETTING AND DESIGN:

The study was conducted at Aarhus University Hospital as a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial assessing changes in bone turnover markers, bone mineral density (BMD), and geometry.
PARTICIPANTS:

The study population comprised 74 middle-aged obese men with MetS recruited from the general community, of which 66 completed all visits. Mean age of participants was 49.3 ▒ 6.3 years and mean body mass index was 33.7 ▒ 3.6 kg/m(2).
INTERVENTION:

elsewhere in bone mineral density in obese men

Oral treatment with 1.000 mg RSV (RSV(high)), 150 mg RSV (RSV(low)), or placebo daily for 16 weeks.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE:

Prespecified primary endpoint was change in bone alkaline phosphatase (BAP).

RESULTS:

BAP increased dose dependently with RSV (R = 0.471, P < .001), resulting in a significantly greater increase in BAP in the RSV(high) group compared with placebo at all time-points (week 4, 16.4 ▒ 4.2%, P < .001; week 8, 16.5 ▒ 4.1%, P < .001; week 16, 15.2 ▒ 3.7%, P < .001). Lumbar spine trabecular volumetric bone mineral density (LS vBMD(trab)) also increased dose dependently with RSV (R = 0.268, P = .036), with a significant increase of 2.6 ▒ 1.3% in the RSV(high) group compared with placebo (P = .043). In addition, changes in BAP and LS vBMD(trab) were positively correlated (R = 0.281, P = .027).

No consistent changes were detected in bone density at the hip.
CONCLUSIONS:

Our data suggest that high-dose RSV supplementation positively affects bone, primarily by stimulating formation or mineralization. Future studies of longer duration comprising populations at risk of osteoporosis are needed to confirm these results.
TRIAL REGISTRATION:

ClinicalTrials.gov NCT01412645.

8. Physical therapy is the way to go imo

Chiropractors are not as knowledgeable and they'll work mostly with bone. A PT will know what is going on and recommend further tests and scans if needed.

9. It fixed itself. My hips are a tiny bit sore. I just have

to lose some weight. There is no getting around that.
