I am 63 & have Arthritis, My hip got to hurting so bad, I could hardly walk. My Dr. took x-rays & said it was bursitis. He pushed on a couple spots & ask where it hurt the most & than gave me a shot in that spot. About 2 days later it quit hurting & hasn't hurt since. That was about 6 months ago. Ask your Dr., maybe it will work for you too. Good luck.
