I was diagnosed with OA and bursitis of the hip 8 years ago. I have flares but for the most part I'm fine. I had another flare a few months ago and started PT. It worked beautifully, until the tech had me running on a treadmill, doing lunges and using tension bands while sidestepping and walking backwards. Everyone else in the PT room was getting ultrasound or icing, meanwhile I felt like I was at a crossfit class. Ever since the active PT I've been having more hip pain as well as aches/cramps down my thigh and around my knee (which also has arthritis). Should I be worried about this? Is it normal? Needless to say I have stopped going to that PT tech.
Hmmm, I'm not an expert, but having had hip arthritis myself and the last thing I needed to be doing was high-impact exercise. Strength training, yes, that makes sense but running? That doesn't sound right to me.
