More than a decade after being diagnosed with a "classic and incurable" case of hip osteoarthritis I am symptom free and enjoying an active life. My symptoms (in hip, neck, shoulder and spine) turned out to be entirely due to complex imbalances in my core muscles. Similar muscle imbalances are likely to be at least a contributing factor in most cases diagnosed as osteoarthritis; the only way to determine the root of your symptoms to address the muscle imbalances and see what - if anything - remains.
I have a separate web site dedicated to sharing the full details of my symptoms, the diagnosis and prognosis, the battles and setbacks and the ultimate cure through physical therapy. The information on this website has helped others to achieve the same results as me - complete resolution of osteoarthritis symptoms!
