Hip Trouble

I've had lower back pain for many years and more recently arthritis in my shoulder has been diagnosed. Recently there have been signs of hip trouble, so I am looking to do what I can to keep things under control.

At the moment I am pretty mobile and pain is still at the nuisance level. I've signed up with Leon and am awaiting the first routine.

    Leon will set you a lovely routine and will make sure that it suits your ability.

    Hope you enjoy it and the trouble with your hip gets itself sorted soon as well.

    Hi there,

    I’ve had shoulder and neck pain for some years - had to take early retirement because of it. I found that a warm heat pad ( I use the microwaveable one really helps to ease it, plus gentle stretches. There are a few on the VA website you could have a look at. Even though it hurts a bit when I start, I usually feel so much better when I’ve done a few. It’s such a vicious circle with arthritis isn’t it - pain makes it hurt to move so you don’t move which makes the pain worse!

    Heres the link to those ( very gentle) exercises I mentioned https://www.versusarthritis.org/media/1923/shoulder-pain-exercise-pamphlet.pdf
