Ouch about the arthritis.

I used to have a hip that hurt to move.

I managed to fix it.

It took some time.

Lying in bed on my back I would grab my feet / ankles / shins and move my legs about in squatting kinds of motions, internal rotation, external rotation.

There were parts of the range of motion that felt 'grabby' or 'gritty' or 'stiff'. They can be 'flossed' by very gentle working through that range of motion. I think of it like ironing the creases out. YOu actually are doing that as the motion gets the synovial fluid moving around helping to flush all the crap out of the joint.

There were parts of the range of motion that felt 'stabby'. You can use your hands on your ankles / feet to help actively pull the head of the femur inside the socket. Like... If you imagine hanging from a pull-up bar you can hand with your joint nearly dislocated... Or you can actively 'pack' the joint by using the muscles around your shoulder to help hold it together. It's really hard work hanging from a bar... We don't usually think we need to use the rotator cuff of the femur (gluteal stabilisers) to hold the femur properly into the pelvis for pain free range of motion... But we do.

That's my theory, anyway.

You can learn to hold your femur differently for pain free range of motion.

Not always... Not if the degeration is too bad, likely...

But I used to have this awful clicky hip with stabby pains sometimes and I'd get a couple strides of a run and it would sort of collapse on me.

And I managed to iron it all out with the flossing and learning to hold it so I could squat pain free. Lying on my back. Then standing up using a rail for support. Then no support. Then loaded barbell...

Maybe for you, too. Maybe.
