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.

Soft tissue, other issues?
I'm telling you, it is the deal...
Seek out your providers my friends.

Don't forget to bite down hard as to not scare the other patients around you.  It works but it's not exactly massage therapy ;D

No...plain and simple...It hurts.  But the results are good.

How is it different from A.R.T?

They use stainless steel tools to get in there where no hand possibly can.
The guy I've been going to is licensed in A.R.T. as well, so he is doing the double duty.
A.R.T. moves with the Graston Tools.
I almost feel like I should be wearing leather, whips and chains...

T98, how are you feeling?

getting better....walking with/without a cane now.  Still have swelling which limits my range and glutes are really weak.  I do have pain when sitting/standing for longer times at work so thats my only complaint.  Gonna start getting in the pool and spinning.  Not sure about anyone else but this was a little more difficult then i expected.  The soft tissue stuff really was the most difficult thing.  The Dr. said it was a rather "tough" recovery due to the "carpentry" work, but I guess after having three scopes i thought this would be along the same lines.  I guess its really hard to be limited.  I want to walk normal, but my glutes won't listen very well. Can't wait to get out on the tri bike though and soak up some sun this summer.  :)

You'll be out there, I was given permission to ride at six weeks, but one thing for sure; you'll be feeling better once you get back to the pool.

I got 2 months of graston on the IT band after my GP said I was inflexible (pre-knowledge of OA).  The GP bent me around, sent me to x-ray and then sent me to PT without having an ortho look at the images.  All the PT and grastoning wouldn't have fixed my inflexibility.  Although, I did sort of enjoy the feeling after being grastoned.  Akin to eating a habenero, I guess.
