In Part 2, Dr. B and Eric respond to the following questions:

  • 53:25 – I am very active and a cyclist, Sometimes when my left leg moves laterally and rotated, I get a “stiffness” or pain, my ortho said it wasn’t hip issue and I should strech it. Any ideas?
  • 54:05 – Can you have a loose body in the hip?
