I am currently in therapy for my back,hips and knees. The back and knees are better which in turn helps my hips have less strain on them. I still can not sleep on either side due to the pain waking me up so in that context,no,it has not helped.Therapy has however made me more mobile which in turn means I can get more and better exercises done to keep my hips from getting immobile due to non use.
