pain when sitting down

I have arthritis in my left hip and recently have experienced considerable pain when sitting down whether in the house or in the car. Is this a normal symptom?

Hello Barbara,
Where are you experiencing pain? Is in the groin, side of the hip, or buttock?

How advanced is the arthritis? Can you attach a copy of the report, or better still a jpeg of the xray?

Early hip arthritis is very treatable with chiropractic; advanced stuff is for a surgeon. In the middle it's more difficult to know which way to turn.

Are you doing gentle hip exercises, and some strengthening movements?
