Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Follow your therapists directions for specific exercises.  here is a link to some offered on the McMinn Centre site.  Enter, then go to Rehabilitation: http://www.mcminncentre.co.uk/flash/

I started on a recumbent stationary bike at the end of week 2.

It helped me ease into developing a range of motion (ROM) and build my stamina back up.  At first i started with no resistance and could only do 10 minutes or so.  The recumbent bike has an adjustable seat that slid back AND leaned back so I could adjust it to whatever ROM I could handle at the time.

At week 8 I do 20 minutes in the morning when i get up and 20 minutes again in the evening after dinner, its GREAT!

Gotta give kuddos to a swimming pool to, started a few days ago, it kicked my butt and worked parts of the leg that other exercises didn't seem to reach.

The excersize you hate the most and hurts the most is the best one for you.  For me it was leg lifts on my back, so I worked on that one and when I got that muscle up to par..  I worked it with weights after I could do them on my own...hope that info helps..
