I have been diagnosed with OA of the hip and over the past 6 months have tried to help myself (due to little help from the NHS). I take Naproxen for pain relief and anti-inflammatory purposes plus various supplements (which I'm not sure whether they help, but will continue them). I do feel that some days I seem to have things under control, but am still limted to what activities I can do. No more vigorous exercise, brisk walking, swimming, and 18 holes of golf for me, but I have tempered things to a level I can manage. I know this is not the answer, but I will continue to seek information and advise, and this is my reason for this new discussion.
Has anyone tried Gait Analysis? I have been told from my latest check up that I have one leg shorter than the other, which is part of my problem, but to assess this there is a method whereby ones gait can be measured on a computer. This could result in treatment or paying out for personally made shoe inners to achieve proper body balance
I have also read up on Magnectic Resonance Therapy (MRT). Again, I ask does anyone know anything about this or personally tried it. I hear it can be very successful for chronic arthritic pain.
Obviously none of the above are on the NHS, but I would like some feed back if anyone personally knows about these two therapies.
