Hip Pain 3

Hip Pain 3

Question:

I have just been diagnosed with Osteo Arthritis, it is in my hands, one shoulder and neck, I also get stiffness in my left hip if I am on long journeys, and buckle a bit when I get up. One up and about I am fine. I would appreciate some guidance. Will I still be able to run, do I need to change or include things in my diet etc.

Shani

Answer:

Dear Shani,

If you’ve been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of your hip then I would recommend that you speak to your GP/specialist regarding your training and dietary needs. High impact exercise is not usually advisable if you have degenerative changes in weight-bearing joints.

Kind regards
