Question: I am having spasms in what I think is my adductor muscles. I would like to know if this could be caused by the problems with my psoas muscle? Why would it take over 2 years for my psoas to act up? Do you think a hip revision would correct the problem or is that a maybe it would or maybe it wouldn't scenario? difficult getting into a car, washing the bottom of my foot in shower and stairs. otherwise achy sometimes but no real pain.

Brief Answer:
You need to be investigated

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Thank you for posting your question on HealthcareMagic.
Spasm of the psoas muscle could be very painful and disabling .
To help it get better we need to investigate for any nutritional deficiency.
I would recommend serum calcium ,vitamin d and B12 levels to be checked.
Meanwhile you could take the help of a physiotherapist to guide you to excercises which will help to release or prevent the cramp.
Gentle ultrasonic massage and hot packs will also be beneficial.
Hope this helps
Best wishes

You did not answer my question and I am not having spasms in the psoas. I just had my yearly check up and I am not deficient in any of the areas you mentioned. I have had therapy and there is nothing they can do for my psoas. my question was about my adductor spasms and if you think it was related to my psoas pain and if surgery to re do my THR would help. I also paid for a specialist in orthopedic surgery not a family doctor.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again, yes your adductor spasms are related to the psoas pain that you are having .
A re do THR may not help .Osteotomy may help you relieve your symptoms.
I would still recommend physiotherapy prior to surgical intervention.

Since this is an AAD(ask a doctor) it has been posted under all the specialities, for your concerned speciality(orthopedics) I would advice you to contact customercare for the query to come under AAS(ask a speciality).

Best wishes.

My friend, Jay has a son, Jimmy, age 8, and is well-nourished so she tries to make sure that besides eating healthy that he take a daily child’s multivitamin/mineral pill that also includes 10 mg of iron. She’s particularly concerned that he get enough iron because she’s read that iron-deficiency anemia is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in children. Therefore, she also gives him an additional iron supplement containing 30 mg of iron that was given to her at the health clinic to take because her hemoglobin levels were low. At Jimmy’s latest health check-up, the pediatrician notices that his growth rate has decreased since his check-up last year and is now below average for his age, and Mrs. Jones reports that Jimmy’s appetite has decreased lately and he hasn’t been eating as much. When closely questioned by the physician, Mrs. Jones tells him about the supplements she’s been giving her son. The doctor feels that Jimmy is indeed suffering from a nutritional deficiency, but it isn’t iron!
