I don't know if this will help, but I had hip bursitus and couldn't sleep on one side at night--couldn't run or exercise much. Then my hb read about a vet who cured this problem with a vitamin: Ester C. Evidently, people couldn't afford to get hip replacements for their dogs and he saved them with this. I can testify it works in humans--no more hip or lower back pain!! Article on internet--you could find it with Google maybe. It actually heals hip dysplasia! Not just covering up a symptom.
