Have hip dysplasia, lumpy knees, cramps , and throbbing pain throughout legs. Suggest some exercise and treatment?

So many question....... The main one is about pain in my legs. I m 53. I have the beginnings of hip displaysia, lumpy knees, cramps , and throbbing pain throughout my legs constantly. I walk occasionally for exercise. My mother has had two knee replacements and hip replacements (she s truly bionic). What can I do to relieve the pain in my legs? Does exercise enhance the pain, or relieve it? What exercises can I do? Meds? I need relief. Thank you. Terri Murcia

Hip dysplasia is underdevelopment of your hips and if you have it, you have had it all of your life. In later life have dysplastic hips can lead to early osteoarthritis which causes pain and stiffness in the hip region. Therapy for osteoarthritis of the hip can start with weight loss and physiotherapy. Antiinflammatory medication if often useful. If the symptoms progress and are severe then a total hip replacement can be done which is an excellent treatment to relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis of the hip joint.
