    My pelvis tilts both that way and sideways but that's because my arthritis is so widespread. I exercise to keep the muscles strong.

    I can't see how tape would help but I know you've used it before in other places. Did it help then?
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    All arthritis 'treatments' are short-term in nature apart from the meds which are long-term. I suppose the tape is doing what the muscles could if strong enough - am I right in thinking that you have OA? DD
    Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben

    I've looked but really don't see how it can achieve anything. Maybe for the 'worried well' but surely not for anyone with arthritis?
