Len I have it in my back and hips, a couple things help but consistency is key. Eating right (God made, not man - EVERYTHING) reduces inflammation of everything. Then I add Glucosamine and Chondroitin, Turmeric, fish oil (all have to be highly digestible not chemical based) then move. Bike, swim, pilates, yoga, low impact flexibility exercises. I do some follow along pilates on YouTube, helps me anyway. Good luck!
