I don't have hip dysplasia but I am loaded with osteoarthritis in my hands, spine and hips.

First off, if you're overweight, lose it. Get skinny.

Physical therapy often times helps.

Start out with NSAIDS but when they stop working narcotics will be the only relief until you get hip replacement surgery.

How old are you?

My younger brother had hip replacement last month. Today I stopped by his house and asked him how it was. Said he should have done it

5 years ago, Then he danced a little jig around the kitchen.
