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.

4 Year HR Anniversary with Dr. Friedrich Boettner 2012
« on: November 30, 2016, 05:04:36 PM »

Hi folks.
Four years later and my hip still continues to improve. This year was a big improvement for my resurfaced hip toward a more natural function and feel.

But, this did not happen without a renewed effort.

In my first year post op I was able to return to playing soccer. After that I lost focus on continuing to work on my hip range of motion. I just figured with all my activity that it would improve on its own.


It was not until my fourth year that I sought out professional help with PT to see if they could help me improve my performance in sports. They showed my that my body was still compensating for my resurfaced hip due to lack of ROM. As soon as I began to gain more degrees in my hip function (in all directions) I noticed improvement that I couldn't imagine. Even just walking it was much more normal.


I ran the Thanksgiving 5K this year and sliced over 10% off my previous two years - and I could have run much faster but I was very restrained with my pace based on the previous years.


Keep on working on the ROM hippies and it will pay off!

Congrats Chuck! And thanks for the update and info. It's very helpful to those of us who are still breaking in our new metal hips. My right hip is lagging behind the left in ROM but it slowly improving. I'm only about 7 months out from surgery so I know it's early but it's sure nice to read posts like yours and to know I can expect improvement for the long term and I just need to keep active and remain patient.


Keep up the good work and the progress! I wish you many, many more successful hippy anniversaries.  8)

Great stuff Chuck. I also has a regression due to throwing out my back a couple of times. Back to full workouts now, just shows it's good to keep it up.

Congratulations.

Great to hear, Chuck!  We all have to keep working on our PT. I gues our muscles have been abused more than others.  Keep it up.

So glad to hear this. I want to know there is continuing progress to be made as we undo our old, bad habits.
