After many years in the saddle (as a casual rider only) I am currently unable to ride to due a problem with my hips. I just got the X-rays back and it seems I have a "pincer" deformity on both hips which is causing pain and limited motion. I am hoping this can be treated with pain meds and possibly surgery in the near future, and then I'll obviously be wanting to start riding again. To avoid a recurrence of this problem it seems I may have to pay more attention to the fit of my bike, and how I sit. From what I've read so far it seems that my cranks may be a little too long for my leg length, and perhaps a more upright riding position will also help to reduce the effect of hip joint impingement. Has anyone else had to deal with anything similar, or have any suggestions as to how to reduce the impact on hip joints ?
