Currently modern medicine caters for the majority - the 99% of OA sufferers who lack the motivation to aggressively and consistently battle against their condition. This book isn't for them! It's for the neglected one percent who are prepared to do the necessary rehab work.

"Great book, already seeing results after week one of the treatment plan. Anyone who has had a hip OA diagnosis, has hip related pain or instability or who wants to avoid these in the future, should read this book. Especially people with desk jobs!"
This Book is a Miracle Worker!
"After only 3 weeks of following this program my hip pain is down so much that I can actually sleep at nights and I can walk my dog around the block without muscle spasms and pain. I look forward to continuing the program and feeling even better! I am SO happy I bought this book as I have tried so many other things that did not help. Thank you, Susan for sharing this program - it has certainly made a positive difference in my life!"

To whoever is reading this,, don't even think about it.. just get the book. You will be glad you did!"
No one should give up hope of a complete cure on the basis of an osteoarthritis diagnosis.
What is in the book?
- An objective appraisal of what an OA diagnosis really means, based on guidelines from one of the world's leading health bodies. You'll be surprised at how little is required for such a diagnosis, and how many commonly held beliefs about OA are either out-dated or just plain wrong. Once you understand this, you'll see that your future needn't be as bleak as you've been led to believe.
- The story of my own battle with hip OA, and the encouragement you'll need to escape the "learned helplessness" that is so prevalent where OA is concerned.
- An examination of the huge role that muscle imbalance plays in the symptoms and development of OA, and some simple diagnostic tests to help you identify which pattern of core imbalance you have.
- A cyclic self-administered treatment plan designed to help you unravel your muscle imbalance and regain the function and pain-free movement you have lost. This section of the book spans over 100 pages; all the rehab exercises were carefully chosen for their simplicity and efficacy, and are accompanied with detailed advice on how to avoid common pitfalls and ensure that the correct muscles truly are being targeted (a major problem with many rehab exercises is the ease with which an outwardly correct movement can be generated by the wrong muscles).

Who is it likely to help?
- The book focuses on hip OA specifically, though it should be noted that patterns of dysfunction in other joints (shoulders, knees) can have their root in muscle imbalances that produce misalignment of the pelvis. Indeed, my own hip OA was accompanied by increasing dysfunction and pain throughout my body, but these secondary problems spontaneously resolved themselves once I tackled my twisted pelvis.
- Two patterns of hip OA are presented; understandably the pattern which afflicted me is covered in the most detail. Nevertheless, the general guidance is given on identifying your specific case and adapting the treatment plan where necessary, and the same general principles should apply to a wide range of cases.
- Those who have received surgery but are still suffering the symptoms of OA (lingering muscle imbalances) will certainly find the book helpful; equally those who wish to maximise their chances of a good outcome from joint replacement will benefit from working on their muscle imbalances, both before and after their surgery.
- Even those who have not received an OA diagnosis but suffer from the following problems should find the treatment plan of significant benefit: hip impingement, issues related to spine misalignment, labral tears, sacroiliac joint dysfunction/pain.
