driving a clutch shift

Will driving a clutch shift worsen my left hip osteoarthritis?

That's a good question, Brian, and frankly I'm not sure.

I think not, as hip arthritis needs gentle mobilising exercise; I take it you're not talking about about a Big Mack Tank truck!

About the worst thing you can do for hip arthritis is not move the joint; then it'll rapidly turn to concrete. Movement helps enormously. In fact mobilise it every morning before getting out of bed.

I would certainly spend a couple hours driving in traffic and see what happens.
