Osteoarthritis of the hip can be painful, affect and limit function, and often result in surgery if left untreated.  This webinar covers assessment protocols to better understand the dysfunction that is causing wear and tear on the hip joint, as well as techniques that not only treat the underlying causes of arthritis, but also result in regeneration of the cartilage.

This webinar is different than the Joint Needling webinar in that it is specifically on the hip joint and includes assessment, soft tissue techniques, and using cutaneous nerves to treat the pain and underlying causes of osteoarthritis of the hip.
