HV, about Hip Bursitis and Back Pain
Thanks for the replies in the thread earlier.
My questions now relate to my mum (51 years old). She has had hip bursitis for just over a year, started on the right side and now it's on both sides. I didn't know what it was until the doctors diagnosed it last month.
A year before getting the hip bursitis, some lumbar discs were displaced (slipped discs) which caused her great pain and the muscles in her upper back tighten up with coldness, this also started with the slipped discs.
No physical trauma occured before getting the slipped discs or hip bursitis.
There is no Arthritis
in the hip joints/pelvis according to X-rays and MRI nor did they detect any slipped discs. The doctors told her to do exercises for 6 weeks and also take Ibuprofen and if this method does not work then they will inject her bursa's with non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) one side at a time.
A friend abroad practices chiro and made adjustments to her spine last year for free (bursitis was already starting on one side) when she went on holiday and said she pushed in 4 discs. The pain in my mums lower back reduced by about 80% after adjustment.
She also has mild adrenal fatigue and due to acid reflux (hiatus hernia) I have her on 2x 1000mg Ester Low Acid Vitamin C and the other vitamins/minerals I also take for my AF.
She has tried magnesium oil to no effect for a month and is still continuing its usage though she hasn't tried Epsom Salts
. The exercises aren't helping either or the Ibuprofen which I've told her to stop taking.
I'm at a loss as to what to do as the pain is getting progressively worse and the doctors are useless.
Do you know what is causing the hip bursitis and the upper back pain HV?
Is it because of the slipped discs or tissue inflammation due to AF (which is mild, especially compared to my AF). The chiro said that my mums back muscles are tight and its the tight muscles that are pulling the spinal discs out of alignment.
