Hi Alinka
It definitely sounds like we have similar pains going on. My knee is rather temperamental, too, esp when it comes to weather changes.

Hips......I had my adductors get so tight at one point that surgery to release them was mentioned. Fortunately, they settled down after awhile due to stretches and Pilates. But they act up, esp in the flexors. Now it is just a matter of finding heat and letting them settle. The calf has been a disaster for me, esp post-botox (botox button). I can see why you'd want to avoid more chats with the ortho if surgery looms as the option.

That is unfortunate about the attitude your country has toward CP mgt and PT. While I do not relish in the thought of it -- time, expense -- its value can be great if done by the right person and possibly minimize the need for other CP care. But when it comes to bottom line, insurance companies don't see it this way.

So, you have to rely on the kindness of friends who might also be PT specialists with a CP focus. Hmmm.....
