I had scar tissue after hip replacement. I have a massage therapist who does mayo facial release. It took care of the scar tissue, IT band tightness, and other muscle imbalances from walking funny.

I have OA. I went to the rheumatologist because I noticed changes in my ankle alignment and discomfort on inside bursa to calf on knee. I take a wholistic approach to life so I asked for an assessment and option discussion. She agreed. When I went back after blood work and X-rays she spread the results on the table And began chondrocalcinosis on the pages of X-rays of feet knees and hands. Then immediately when for the drugs, colchicine, plaquenil, methotrexate. I refused until I could review the results and consider what I was being told. Turns out these drugs are for CPPD attacks which I have never had. I told her I understood that CPPD could be a symptomatic and these drugs were not appropriate. In reviewing the X-ray reports she underlined chondrocalcinosis that was preceded by the word “no”. Only on joint has “subtle” chondrocalcinosis. The others were typical OA degeneration. As I read on, to have a true diagnosis synovial fluid is analyzed. I understand there is no remedy, only for attacks. During my initial visit she mentioned HA injections and never returned to the discussion. I am also interested in PRP and stem cell. Any discussion on these issues?
