Drysdale Osteopathy • Arthritis of the Hip

Arthritis of the HipPatient: Man 66 years
Occupation: Retired Accountant
Pain: 3/10

Complaint: This Gentleman is a keen Golfer, he has minor Arthritis of the left Hip. Walking any distance causes pain in the groin and knee. The condition is not bad enough to need an Hip replacement operation. The pain is negligible at rest.

Treatment: Deep Massage and Mobilisation of the Hip & Low Back. Acupuncture of Trigger Points around the groin and inner thigh really eased the condition, and allows the Gentleman to play Golf.

Prognosis: The hip joint may deteriorate over time and need a hip replacement operation. I see this Gentleman at monthly intervals, and things have been stable for 2 years.
