Hi, I'm new in this forum. I have recently been told I have osteoarthritis of the hip. Much pain, activity limiting, etc etc. The treatment is, first, physiotherapy. Next, an injection (if physio doesn't work, I suppose), then replacement. But hopefully that's a long way off. The thing that bothers me most at the moment is the weakness that has developed in my leg/s. I am a line dancer, and that was the first thing to go, sadly. I can't walk far now, so that sort of exercise is not an option. I can't even stand for any length of time. Has anyone had any treatment (besides replacement) that has resulted in better leg strength? I'm really quite worried (frantic!) that I will never dance again. I'm 73, btw.
Thanks for listening.
