Often times neurological problems are confused with orthopedic problems... not saying that is necessarily the case here, but I think it is worth considering. The "licking his hind legs" thing sounds odd to me-- yes, it could indicate pain or discomfort but again- what is the source?

The pacing my dog did when she was 13-14 but I attributed it to dementia.

I suggest perhaps a second opinion. I know you're trying to go holistic now, but if your dog IS painful from the arthritis to the point where it is causing him to not be able to get comfortable, he probably needs some pain medication...
