Hip Arthritis and using cane
By January 20, 2011 at 4:45 am 4,841 9 5
Hi there. Does anyone find it easier to walk with a cane when coping with hip arthritis? I work in an office and I'm constantly getting up and down but lately I need my cane. I hate the fact that I have to use it but it does help. I am experiencing groin pain more and more as I can't seem to stretch my legs out too far. I am going to PT for about six weeks and also my ortho surgeon wants me to get another cortisone injection. It did help get me out of the agonizing pain i was in..at least I can sleep in my bed and not the recliner with a heating pad all the time. I still limp though and the cane helps me not limp. Also, has anyone every tried PT for a long time when diagnosed with hip arthritis and did it do any good? Thank you for your input.
