Hip OA related Sacral/Pelvic Torsion - Susan Westlake book
I am a 51 year old male diagnosed with moderate OA in my right hip. I recently purchased Susan Westlake's book, 'HIP Osteoarthritis CAN be Cured: Treating OA with Physical Therapy'. While I am of course keeping my mind open to whether this is a condition that can really be cured, after reading the first half of the book I can see that my condition/symptoms do seem to match what Susan herself suffered from in the book. My right leg does now seem 'longer' than the left and my right foot does want to point 'outwards' to the right rather than stay straight. After doing some of the self-diagnosis steps in the book it seems that I may also have a sacral or pelvic torsion of the sacrum which could also be now contributing to my discomfort/conditions. I am guessing that this has been caused by the OA or has actually contributed to the OA. My OA was most likely triggered by a physical injury 4-5 years ago in my right hip.
I wanted to ask whether anyone with Hip OA has successfully managed to use this book to help with their condition if they also self-diagnosed a sacral torsion. Ideally I would like to find a therapist or even a class where they specialise in rectifying a condition such as this.
Any help appreciated!
