You get on my nerves...
« on: February 07, 2013, 02:31:05 AM »
Had an excellent explanation today from my Dr. who I see for Chiro, Graston and ART regarding running post-op hip replacement...
Small nerve bundles are inevitably cut and compromised during the surgery, no matter who the surgeon.  The smaller neurons try to branch out and repair to the compromised muscles over time but some will not and those muscle cells that cannot be recruited will atrophy and cause permanent weakness. Thus as you continue your endeavours you are recruiting fewer muscles to do the same work.  This causes the fascia to tighter and become fiberous, resulting in tightness and weakness.
You can try to rebuild through strengthening and each person is different but you may never re-inervate every single motor unit. (flabby ass) :'(
Moral is give it all you've got...
Best...

Sounds like good advice, David.

I know there's muscles that need retraining in my workouts, especially now that I'm getting to the more complex movements. I'm starting on spinning kicks, the compound movements do point out weak areas. Let's see how far I can take it, giving it all I've got.

Feels like learning to walk again, to get the movements flowing. I assume it's a type of nerve readjustment at its basic level. It feels stronger, so let's see what this recalibrated body can do.

Great topic....

The thought is that there are certain muscles you will never re-inervate because of the loss of neuron activity.  They will atrophy by not firing...thus loss in strength and productivity.

Interesting information, and it may explain something that I noticed recently. I am 4 1/2 years out, and if you asked me, I would say that my resurfaced leg is just as strong as my other leg. However, recently I was doing one legged step-ups onto a box with light weights in each hand. I was surprised to discover that my resurfaced leg could do only half of what my other leg could do; 20 versus 40+ reps, while carrying the same weights. I do not notice the difference when doing two legged squats, one legged shallow squats, sprinting stairs, or skiing, but the difference in the one legged step-ups really surprised me after all this time. I think that the difference in this exercise is that it really relies on all of the glutes around the area of the surgery, as opposed to quad and hamstring strength that would be less affected.
Your explanation might apply.

Skip, some will, but inevitably not all. Thus the early fatigue of the glute med/min on the operated hip(s).

Hey Guys

I have removed a bunch of the posts.  I can see it ramping up.

This is what I can tell you - whether you like it or not:

For every study you find and quote - there is another one that says the opposite.  Hip resurfacing is good - hip resurfacing is bad.  There are studies by the most experienced hip resurfacing surgeons which have different point of views.

You are quoting PTs and trainers, etc.  They are not the top hip resurfacing surgeons.  I realize they may be specialists - but again for every study there is an equal and opposite one.

So take your choice of what you want to believe.  Do not however, start calling those with different opinions wrong or be nasty. 

I won't stand for nasty, name calling or people who think only they, their surgeons and trainers are the only people with correct information.

I have locked this down.  Lets get back to positive discussions.  It is great to hear many opinions, but that is what they all are.  Even with so called studies.
