Thorough heating, with moist heat is the best
treatment for this trouble. This implies time, work, and patience; but
all these are well spent. Let a strong fomentation be given twice a day
to the hip joint, with oiling before and after, each application
lasting at least an hour (see Cooling in Heating; Fomentation; Heat
and Weakness). In all probability a gathering of matter will come to
the surface and discharge itself. Treat this as recommended in article
on Abscess, and persevere until the joint is thoroughly renovated. It
may take a time, and the treatment should always be intermitted on
Sabbath, and sometimes a few days' rest be given. The patient's
comfort is the safe guide in this.
