• Hip replacement, NO WAY!

    I love to do martial arts and one evening doing jumping turning kicks my hip hurt. It hurt for a long time, so finally I got an x-ray and here’s what it said.

    “There is moderate interosseous narrowing involving the left hip with subchondral sclerosis and marginal spurs indicative of moderately advanced OA.” By the look on my GP’s face, I thought he was going to tell me I had terminal cancer.

    I had the x-ray re-read from a friend in a hospital and he informed me I had 10-12 bone spurs around my socket and it was a mess. Some friend…

    Off I went on my journey of research and asking around for what people thought. I have always said you can rebuild a lot of things. I had treated this sort of thing at work several times but no one would stick around long enough to really get it better. I did a lot of work on the hip and several others helped me also.

    A few weeks ago I got up the courage to get another x-ray and here’s what it said:
    “There is moderate OA within the left hip joint. no other bone or joint abnormality is noted.” I have a new GP for this one and he was quite impressed upon reading the first x-ray report. I was relieved.

    Getting rid of a bunch of bone spurs and improving from advanced to moderate OA is a big deal. I am confident my joint will recover to “normal” in the next couple of years.

    It was a lot of work and commitment to recovery but it shows what can be done if one is dedicated to getting well.

    If you would like to know more about how I did it, or do it for yourself give me a call.
