Hello from JustAnswer.

I am sorry that you have been having so much problems with your hips.

However, I am not sure what information you are seeking.

Could you clarify what question you are asking?

Are you asking whether this type of job situation can contribute to the development of these medical problems?

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.

I had asked for clarification of the information that you are seeking, so will address the issue of your job situation.

The problems that you are experiencing are degenerative musculoskeletal conditions. The current evidence for risk factors that contribute to the development of degenerative conditions is that there is a component related to excess weight bearing across the joints, including obesity and carrying items of significant weight, such as you describe. There also is increasing evidence that there is a significant genetic predisposition to developing degenerative conditions, so someone with such a genetic predisposition would have a much greater impact of a job situation that you describe.

If there is other information that you are seeking, please let me know.
