I had dislocated hips as a baby and wore a harness for several months, if not a year. Over the last 10 years, off and on, I have been getting pain from my hips but within the last 5-6 years and more so the last 2-3 years, I feel the pain is getting worse and it is happening quicker. By the time I get home from work I am sore and stiff. i suffer from lower back pain too, as a lot of you do too. I was referred to physiotherapy as basically the doctors didn't know what else to tell me. I have been told it could be wear and tear and osteoarthritis then told \"No don't be silly you are far too young!\" from another doctor. Physio has done nothing and neither has going to the gym (referred there from physio). I have problems with distance, stairs and walking uphill and sometimes get a breath taking pain, almost like something is going to snap, in my hip. I am considering paying privately to see an Osteopath as NHS doctors are not giving me any answers. Is this an option anyone else has taken?
