I've been diagnosed with arthritis on my right hip. It has become very difficult for me to bend and do work. Until recently, I have had only minor discomfort but now I have started to get a lot of pain on my back. Will there be a need for any hip replacement? I am reluctant to have any operation. I take painkillers and I am thinking of undergoing physiotherapy treatment from Dynamic physiotherapy clinic nearby( http://www.dynamicphysiotherapy.ca/services/physiotherapy/ ). I just wonder if others with hip arthritis experience similar pain. I'd appreciate advice from any follow sufferers of hip arthritis.
