as much as the head of the femur in its socket. The CSCDR was applied to bring weight bearing support, reduce the rotation of Mary's iliums, and even out her leg length. Mary immediately felt better, but still had severe limited range of motion and soreness in the hip joint. A pelvic balancing soft tissue protocol was applied working first on the left leg to release the medial rotation and hyperextension of the knee and move the anteriorly rotated ilium posteriorly back into alignment. Then the right leg and hip were treated to bring the right posteriorly rotated ilium anteriorly into balance, and to release the restrictions in the hamstrings, quadriceps, and gluteals and rotators of the right hip. Mary had a Cranial/Structural evaluation and correction along with the pelvic balancing protocol weekly for six weeks. Mary's pain was down to 25% of what she originally had. Upon evaluation Mary's pelvis was out of the core distortion but she still had limitations in the range of motion in the right hip joint. Soft tissue protocols were applied to Mary's right hip and leg to further release restrictions in range of motion and pressure within the actual hip joint. After four more sessions Mary extended her sessions out to two weeks maintaining the improvements in the hip. As Mary continued to improve, her sessions were scheduled further and further apart until she was able to schedule once every two to three months as needed. Due to the degree of degeneration in Mary's hip from both the arthritis and osteoporosis Mary was not able to maintain all the positive changes without an occasional treatment. However, with these treatments, Mary was able to lead a pain free life with her own hip, not an artificial one. Degenerative hip issues are unique for each individual and total recovery is dependent upon a number of variables. However, it is always necessary to release the anterior/posterior rotation of the hips. The most effective way to do this is with the Cranial/Structural Core Distortion Releases in the first session and follow it up with appropriate pelvic balancing soft tissue protocols that can be modified due to specific client symptoms and client improvements.
