    Hello. Developing a painful right hip together with neck and back pain (clicking). Chiropractor said it was a twisted pelvis with arthritis starting in the hip. Am trying water and exercises, but find walking difficult now. I am 62. My father and brother have joint problems, so no doubt hereditary.

      Hello Susan As your chiropractor has been able to properly examine you and has discovered a mechanical issue, our help is limited to recommending our Atrogel simply as an aid to enabling activities such as swimming or the exercises. There's nothing we can offer to adjust a twisted pelvis but we may be able to reduce your discomfort enough to allow you to perform the tasks your chiropractor recommends.

    Hi I have joint pain in my elbows and hips. I'm finding it difficult to pick things up with an outstretched arm, e.g. my hand bag or dinner plate.I assumed it was to do with the menapause. Can you suggest anything?

      Hello Paula Your hip and elbow pain may or may not have a common cause. For example, they may both be caused by the menopause causing the synovial fluid bubble in those areas to dry out and the tendons to be less supple, or the elbow pain could be a touch of tendonitis or bursitis caused by leaning on them at your workdesk. Either way, please consider applying some Atrogel 2-4x/day for quick relief but do consider a product like Menopause Support if you think they've appeared since the hormones started wobbling.

      Hello Usman I can't offer any advice without further information. What was the cause? How long has it hurt? Is there swelling? Has a doctor examined it?

      Hello Usman I can only guess what is wrong as we can't examine you but it sounds like some ligament stretch, perhaps caused by a problem in your feet. Here's a page that might be of interest: https://www.avogel.co.uk/health/muscles-joints/joint-pain/flat-feet-foot-cramps-sore-knees/
