    Hip mobility improvements with bone on bone osteoarthritis?

    Shop Now
    I have made huge improvements in pain relief with PB eating, I no longer need any pain meds, and am walking better, but my right side is really stiff still, I can barely pedal a bicycle. Is there anything I can do to improve flexability, or did I wait too long? I thought I was stuck with what I got, but with the suprising results of my pain relief, I am now hopeful I can see more improvements.

    Help! I want to be able to do a Grok squat! I have spent my whole life bending over, and now my back is saying enough! But my right hip is so stiff i can barely put on my sock! I can only squat about half way. Should I keep practising that until I get stronger, and then try going down further when i am able?

    I thought I would find something for you on the Mobility WOD site (MobilityWOD). Surprisingly, I did not. There have been many reports in these forums of individuals with arthritis problems who have seen considerable improvement on the Primal plan. Most attribute this to the anti-inflammatory effect of the diet, and the joint improvements (better synovial fluid distribution) through the compound joint body weight movements. Try some of these:

    THere are a couple of ways that I would go about this.

    1. find a good quality physiotherapist to help you out -- k-starr style (that is, the mobility wod guy);

    2. find a good quality yoga instructor who has worked with hip osteoarthritis and do that.

    i have worked with this, but without seeing you and having an honest dialogue, i can't give you anything specific.
