Arthritis of the Hip.

Arthritis of the Hip.

Arthritis of the Hip.

Patient: Man 66 years
Occupation: Retired Accountant
Pain: 3/10

Complaint: This Gentleman is a keen Golfer, he has minor O.A. 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.
