Bilateral hip replacements have caused knee problems especially with my right knee.

At first my doctor said I would need a knee replacement eventually but after a couple of years under the care of an osteopath who has been helping to improve my posture and eliminate my sway back along with practicing Iyengar yoga 5 or more classes a week he now has changed his mind and says I don't need the surgery. I have a naturopathic Doctor that does prolo therapy which has also helped.
