Hi Susan, I have been reading your posts. I am a desparate mother, my 19 year old daughter has been suffering with hip pain now for 4 years. She tore her interior lambrum in her hip playing soccer. She has since had the tear repaired with arthoscopy surgery. It has been almost two years since the surgery and she is still in considerable pain. It did not get better after surgery, so the drs now feel that it wasnt the tear in the labrum that is probablly causing the pain but early onset Osteoarthristis. During surgery they found considerable softening of the tissue around the hip joint. This has been a quite the experience, we seem to have no where to go now. The dr. pretty much threw down his clipboard on his desk and said this is Ostearthristis you must learn to live through the pain in order to exercise to help build up the supporting muscles. My daughter can't even walk to the mailbox, it is worse in the cold weather and she is in constant pain. Before her diagnosis we have been to Chiro, massage, acupucture, done it all. I will continue to do the research you have suggested on this site with other discussions you have posted. But right now I need to get her some pain relief. Would you suggest Osteopathy, if I ask about muscle imbalance and joint repositioning, do you think they can help? I am at my wits end, she should not be left to suffer like this. Her quality of life is so restricted. The hip inflamation affects her stomach discomfort, menstral pains etc. She has Celiac Disease and most of the time she can't tell if she has eaten gluten with the stomach upset or if it is just her hip pain radiating. Non of the anti-inflamortories help at all. Desparate!
