Thanks to all for the responses.
Seashell, Interesting stuff. And in Portland....Oh No! My wife and SIL got back from their first trip out that way last month and she's been teasing me about
moving out there. "It's so beautiful!" Great. More ammunition for her! That's a long way from Annapolis! So sorry about
your own ongoing hip issues.
Pitmom, I normally wear the same shoes--New Balance athletic shoes. The alternating heel thing is interesting. Thanks. I'll post again after the MRI with (hopefully) more news. I've thought about
the pillow leg strapping, but I imagine falling trying to get to the bathroom in the middle of the night (the darn cats are a challenge enough!).
Straydog, one of the physical therapists took the back-related approach but it didn't seem to go anywhere. I really don't get the back pain unless on my stomach. Maybe the MRI will show something there if it's an issue.
Rocckyd, I wasn't particularly thrilled with the dry needling, but my PT provider said she has good results with it. I'm willing to give it more time, but I'll wait until I see if the MRI shows a tear.
