Maybe that's what is needed for the pain: LOTS of muscle strengthening exercise.
DW had hip pain for a number of years - diagnosed as bursitis - and strengthening, flexing exercise definitely helped. A few years ago at age 50 she had a bone density scan to get a baseline and was told she had the early signs of osteowatsits and rather than consider medication she started lots of strength training to improve bone density. 4 years on and this has worked great AND the hip pain has pretty well disappeared. (bone scan this year showed normal for her age).

Wow, I knew I would get bursitis in winter in Houston where winter is rainy and chilly at 32 degrees (32 degrees in Houston is different than 32 degrees in Chicago where it's dryer), but I didn't know you could get it in your hip. Maybe that's it...thanks for the insight.

You're welcome. It was DW's Doc that made the diagnosis, but if you want to read up on the symptoms to see if your symptoms are similar try looking here
