  • No, sorry. I wish I did. I have the same problem. I hate sounding like a creaky door when I move! Doing basic stretches is what I do an seems to help somewhat. I think we need to hit up a physical therapist...OR start a Golden Girls remake. Lol.

  • It is best that you have this consulted by a doctor rather than collecting advises by some random people which may even worsen your situation. See also DePuy

  • Exercises that could help strengthen the hips would help. Some people who have had hip replacements ate no filing a hip replacement lawsuit due to some problems encountered with the implants. ITB stretch, swiss ball hip extension and plank exercises would help manage bad hips.
