Core Work
« on: April 30, 2013, 04:52:49 PM »
I am 3 weeks post op now and feeling very strong going about all my daily living easily. I have been walking unassisted since the 2nd week and now can walk 1/2 mile unassisted with minimal pain.  I have been doing the McMinn PT exercises on Vicky Marlow's site since day 1 but feel the need to start working in some core exercises.

I am still on hip precautions until May 4th so I am limited as well as hesitant about any new exercises that might hinder my recovery.  I already overdid once with my home care therapist and don't want to go down that road again.

Does anyone have any core exercises to suggest to me at this stage of my recovery?  I was discharged from home care PT last week and will not start with my other therapist until late next week and would like to get a head start on working my core now since I am feeling like the core has become weakened over these past few weeks.

Thanks,

Kim

Hi

I would still be conservative and cautious, but here are special exercises by Peter Schultz

For others, the McMinn exercises

and a page of more exercises

I hope that helps.
