|To any Orthopedics out there....
I have been having Knee pain for the past 3 years. I am a mid level racer and ride both on and off road all year. I have been living with the knee pain problem and have seen a physician twice. This past visit I complained to him that the pain was also in my hip. He xrayed the hip and found that I had a SCFE when I was younger. I am now 35. It was never treated. He says this is the cause of all my back and knee pain. He says there is nothing to do at this point in my life, but I will need a hip replacement by age 50.
Is this all true? Is there anything I can do at this point to help me continue to ride competively? I would appreciate any info. Thanks!
