Treatment Ratings

    Gokhale Method
    Almost Cured
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Strengthening Exercises, Stretching, Massage, Ice, Walking/Hiking,
    Not Improved
    Heat, Rest

My condition simply causes me to pay attention to how I walk, stand, move. I do yoga and tai chi consciously applying Gokhale method ideas where they are appropriate and note where exercises conflict with Gokhale principles (that I understand). I garden and hike, trying to hip hinge.
