Hip Osteoarthritis can be cured even if it's bone on bone you write! :-)

Hi. I read your very interesting site:

https://www.tendonitisexpert.com/hip-osteoarthritis.html You write:
"I will create a Reversing Hip Osteoarthritis ebook if enough people show an interest."

I turned 48 in November 2019, started having groin problems in August 2016 and was told something like having pulled it. In spring 2017 I was told it was a mix of pulled groin and hip osteoarthritis. The doctor (I lived in Ireland then) had investigated me and there was X-ray.

I had a new X-ray in November 2017(in Sweden as I moved back). I have been told there is no tissue left, so it’s bone on bone.

I was offered a hip surgery already in the beginning of 2018 but turned it down due to side effects and lack of movement that will occur after proposed prostheses.

I have suspected since a fall of a horse at age 19 (while jumping at an eventing track ending up with the horse deciding not to jump in the middle of the jump and me landing on remains of an old tree in the lower back) that I would eventually get problems but maybe not as darn painful as this is.

My groin has caused me problems ever since then and I have had “some service” every now and again from chiropractors. The surgeon disagreed with me about the horse jumping injury having any impact on hip osteoarthritis, but both a chiropractor and a physiotherapist (treating me with ultrasound that improved it to some degree) believed me and expected it to be the origin of the problems.

I did find the book Osteoarthritis Can Be Cured.

I did the 6 weeks program in the book in the summer of 2018 and then again in the fall of 2019, but it does not take me the full way and I also found 2019/2020 when I started swimming that the whole thing went back, probably simply cause my muscles were not strong enough to do the training in the program properly and then when I gained muscle the body gained muscle in the “osteoarthritis way”. I can see when walking and cycling that my left leg responds like my legs used to when I started pumping them with muscles and exercise but the left leg and bum side looks like another person when I do it now.
Massage makes it somewhat better but does not make me regain muscle and I still limp heavily.

So to make it clearer, in 2018, after doing the program in the book, I got off the crutches but still far away from good
old athletic me. I used the crutches for longer distances, I could do without them when going to the bathroom and the lunchroom upstairs but not for longer distances like a kilometer.

I actually managed to go to Africa last year for a horse riding safari that lasted 8 days plus the demanding travel back and forth. We only jumped a very small hurdle 3 times and being an experienced rider I managed to get my horse to be low-key and keep the jump low, as he was very excited and I did not want too much push on the leg.

We also travelled by jeep after 5 days, from South Africa to Botswana to ride our last 3 days. There was a lot of riding and fast gallops in the bush but I did everything except for a walk one evening, which was the only time they went for an evening walk. We had help getting on the horses and I would not have managed getting up on my own.

Once in the saddle it pretty much felt like old me apart from the fact that I used to love jumping and dressage and now we were “just safari” riding however some very long gallops and riding for hours every day on the small horses(the 2 I rode were 150-160 cm), using some Botswana mix saddles that looked like a mix of English and Australian Stock saddle I guess. And yes, I was using pain relievers.

I got badly injured the day after I got home and got my arm dislocated and broken. I spent 3 days in hospital due to it and had to go on sick leave from work for 8 weeks. I have sadly not been horse riding after that, yet. Of course it did not only affect my arm and upper body but also had effects on training in general.

So tired of this never-ending story, as I have healed up chronical things before.

Is there a Reversing Hip Osteoarthritis ebook ?

Kind Regards,

Hi Charlotte.

1. There is presently no Reversing Hip Osteoporosis program. You're the second person to mention it since I wrote that which was....minimally a year ago, probably two, maybe longer.

2. A few of the things it would say are:

A. Get your Vit D level up to between 60-80ng/ml as soon as possible.

B. See: www.TendonitisExpert.com/magnesium-for-tendonitis.html

C. Find a good Osteopath and have them make sure that your hip bones/pelvis and sacrum and lumbar spine are aligned/where they should be. No, a chiropractor isn't going to do that/do that well (It's possible I guess, but unlikely, depending on the chiro.) A really good sports massage therapist MAY know how to do it,depending. Maybe a really good physiotherapist would no how to do it (I don't know how things are in Sweden).

All of the above are critical. If your pelvis bones (right and left sides)/sacrum/lumbar spine aren't where they should be, then your legs can't work properly, meaning, they can't absorb force, and all that force has to go somewhere...like your hip joint(s).

Massage etc can help, but if your bones aren't where they should be...it's not going to help for long, for various reasons.

Have you been told that one of your legs is longer than the other by a chiro? IF so, it's INCREDIBLY unlikely that that's true. What is true that as a pelvic bone rotates, it changes where your leg is in relation to the other leg.

It makes all the sense in the world that a bad fall can short term impact and/or long term compensation result in misalignment.

Misalignment means that muscles can't function like they're supposed to...and it's all downhill from there.

Make sense?

Thank you for your response!
I have ordered vitamin D as well as magnesium. You don’t mention calcium? I was a bit puzzled as it is usually mentioned together with vitamin D.

I don’t quite understand why the osteopath would be able to create this for me when this is exactly what the chiropractor tried to do? We measured my legs several times as I constantly felt that my right leg was longer but the chiropractor assured me that it wasn’t. The instructions in the book moved it the right way but would not keep it that way and not enough either. You say nothing about exercises, movements? I used a super good massage therapist but it can still only do so much.

"What is true that as a pelvic bone rotates, it changes where your leg is in relation to the other leg."
Feels very true as my right foot points outwards. I don’t quite understand where the force and muscles go when exercising cause the left leg gets stronger but the right one just a fraction of it.


Joshua Comments:

"I was a bit puzzled as it is usually mentioned together with vitamin D." We get enough calcium from even the Standard American Diet, but don't utilize it due to lacking Vit D and Magnesium.

As a nation we are top of the list for osteoporosis, but also top of the list for calcium supplementation. It doesn't work. Because lack of calcium isn't the problem.

"I don’t quite understand why the osteopath would be able to create this for me when this is exactly what the chiropractor tried to do? We measured my legs several times...." That's kind of the answer. 'Measuring leg length' isn't what needs to be done. Aligning/putting the pelvic bones is.

Chiropractors as a general statement don't effectively align pelvic bones, if they bother trying at all.

A good PT is also an option. But not all PT's have the skill.

Unfortunately, same is said of massage therapists: some are more skilled than others in certain skills.

Most aren't going to know how to align the pelvic bones/sacrum/l5.

If alignment is off, then that strength difference can be felt, because biomechanically, both legs aren't working the same (strength produced, etc).
