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.

Ice
« on: January 31, 2013, 09:35:17 PM »
When did you all stop using ice?  I stopped at week 6 to 7.  I think that it was a mistake.  My IT band, piriformis muscle, and psois muscle are all fired up on the same hip.  Subsequently, my back hurts again.  Got PT involved and they noticed the instability in the hip so I guess it was good to stop any bad habits.  Thanks.
Cordially,
Ross

I didn't fully stop for about five months. I used it a lot less, but it was still needed if I worked out, etc.

One of the things that really helped me with the IT band was the dreaded foam roller. There is no exercise aid that is both more beneficial and more initially excruciating (gets much better after a few weeks), I believe. It was (and remains, I use it religiously) a great tool for keeping my IT band in line.

Also helps with back, shoulders, etc.

Yeah I have the foam roller but its kind of hard as I had both hips done.  My PT has been working on it.  Used the ice machine last night while sleeping

You are right, Ross - do it when it feels right. One other thing you can use is a tennis ball, just roll it up and down the IT bands until you can do the roller comfortably.

The tennis ball is also good for the iliopsoas in the groin area if it's irritated.

Daily after surgery - probably stopped at about 3 weeks.  Then off and on after PT or if things got a little sore, for another couple weeks.  Since then, I have iced up the hips after a really rigorous soccer match here and there and it felt great.  Although that's more along the lines of icing like a lot of athletes do after a rigorous work out. 

Dan Gossack might still be wearing his ice pants 1.5 years later?  Just kidding, but he really loved those pants and talked about them a lot, so I wouldn't be surprised if he is still wearing them.   ;)

I stopped at around 4-5 weeks, and have been, thankfully, relatively pain free since.  I did overdo it once around 9 months, and probably should have iced.  Lesson learned.
