Hip Replacement Surgery Prevented
Ron is a 57 year old male reports pain starting in the left hip about five years ago. The pain came on gradually with periodic sharp sensations experienced mostly at night while in bed. The pain has gotten worse over the years and is now severe. A scan revealed advanced osteoarthritis of the left hip joint. He is interested in prevention of hip replacement.

Examination revealed stiffness, tightness of the hip joint, and hardening of the surrounding hip muscles. The hip joint also felt colder to the touch than the other hip joint indicating restriction of circulation through the affected tissue.

Treatment was started with reported easing of pain within the first week. By the second week there was much improvement in energy and the hip pain felt sharper and more intense. Starting with week three, the hip pain began to resolve and continued to get better each week until the pain was completely gone. There is now much more flexibility in both hip joints and the patient is extremely happy to (1) get rid of the pain (2) avoid hip replacement surgery in the future.

Conclusion: The patient progressed from severe left hip osteoarthritis, hip pain and hip tightness to full resolution of symptoms. He has also experienced more circulation through both hips thus preventing possible pathology in the other hip and prevention of hip replacement as the arthritis progressed.
