I have been diagnosed with OA in my left hip. At 31, I can imagine better things, but the good news is that m
my xrays show only mild arhtritic change (plenty of cartilatge and joint space). My question - as the joint
is only showing mild change, does anyone have reccomendations about how to get the most bang from my
hip until, ultimately, it has to be replaced? I have been told that exercise (stretch& strengthen), along with
NOT running, may help me avoid surgery all together(OR, is that a pipe dream as well???). Gramps, you seem
to have the same issue as well.

Bottom line - you can't beat the arthritis, but maybe it's progress can be slowed.

Also, i sit on my butt all day (which seems to inflame it more than anything)

Any thoughts?

Thanks
Chris
