I was recently diagnosed has having arthritis in my hips, which caused me some considerable discomfort whenever I trained. Having heard of this product I decided to give it a go. Through regular use of this product, I have found that it does help and that I do not have as much discomfort etc when I train now. It also gives some confidence in that it is slowing down the rate of wear and tear in my hips. It gets a thumbs up from me.
