Non-surgical treatments available for hip pain

Q. I am only in my late ‘50s but have developed horrible left hip pain. It started as an ache about a year ago but has now really affected my lifestyle. I have pain at night that wakes me. I also have difficulty going up and down stairs as well as getting out of a chair. I saw a doctor who diagnosed me with arthritis of my hip and gave me some anti-inflammatory medicine. This has helped a little bit but my hip is still really hurting and I do not want a hip replacement just yet.
