Agreed! In 04′ I had hip pain severe enough that standing was out of the question during work. I could walk short distances, sit for a short time, but nothing would placate the pain.
After visiting, what is considered to be a “Top Orthopedic Surgeon” in the Denver/Boulder area, he decided that I should have my Psoas resected. I told him that was out of the question. So, he did some cortisone injections; 1 around the Bursa, and another into the Psoas. This did give me a weekend of relief. The Surgeon then referred me to a hip “Specialist” who showed me an X-Ray that, he said, displayed a “ridge” on the neck of my femur. I was thinking that I needed to see my right side to compare it to something, so I told him I needed time to think.
This resurfacing of the neck would put me on crutches for 6 weeks, with 4 more weeks of light weighted walking. I started to see ads in the local sports weekly for “New Hip Resurfacing Techniques” and I new that I had been duped. I tried many massage techniques, but finally, getting my quadriceps Rolfed did the trick. I’m guessing that extreme quad tightness contributed to anterior pelvic tilt.
