... I have it in the hips. I was supposed to get a hip replacement 6 years ago. (I'm 64). Doctors assured me it would only get worse and nothing could be done. My wife checked the X-rays with another doctor and he warned her about marrying me. I figured I'm very fit and healthy, bone regenerates itself every 7 years or so, so what's going on ? I thought that tight muscles may be inhibiting blood flow to the joint. 4 months with a physio and it just got worse. I thought that massage around the lower spine might help. It worked ! An hour a day of very hard and very painful massage from my wonderful wife, turned it around. I'm now pain free. Now she massages twice a week to maintain it. I still have no idea what makes it tighten so much but I can still climb without problems.

There may be a way massage could help you.

Send her over this way, I've had to change my diet and it worked, but am always welcome to having your wife do the rub thing to me....hmmm, that doesn't sound quite right. Congrats anyway, she's clearly a keeper.

You old dudes are an inspiration for when i get old. (57 now) Wow.

Wow. Thanks for sharing all that.
