Hi Laura, I just read your question and it mirrors my problems. I didn't know I had hip dysplacia until after I had my 2nd child at 37 (4 years ago), and experienced hip pain when getting back to running. I've had the normal physio which helped a little but it kept returning and my knee started hurting too. Lately i thought I had pulled a muscle in my back but 4 weeks later it was still painful. I saw a chiropractor who said it was all connected to my hip problem and I'm currently undergoing treatment with her. I'm in constant pain, and find it hard to do any normal activities such as bending down, getting up from bed or chair, looking behin, changing gear when driving etc. its really frustrating as I would normally hit the gym 4 times a week, now I cant do nothing and its depressing me.

I just wondered how you were getting on and if you found anything that worked? thanks

I had my first set of bi-lateral hips put in at the age of 16. I am now 50. I have had to have my legs virtually reconstructed each time I have had the surgery. I know first hand how this surgery can affect all facets of homelife, career, child bearing, and physical appearance.
