Beginner Yoga Stretches - Whatís safe and approved?
« on: February 22, 2021, 09:26:24 PM »
Prior to surgery, I was practicing Downward-Facing Dog, Cat and Camel, Childís Pose (VERY DIFFICULT with the impingement), Tree Pose, Cobra, Warrior, and doing plyometric exercises like planks and dips.  After the 6 week followup, Iím working some into my rehab exercises, taking it slow and easy of course!  Since Iíve never been able to sit cross-legged in my life, my goal is to do so in front of the Christmas tree this year to open presents instead of asking my wife to hand them to me in my recliner.   :D

To all of the Yoga Hippies out there:  what is safe and doctor-approved during your recovery?  What do you find easy and what is difficult?  What could you do safely at 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 6 months?

Dr Gross' limitations:  No inward rotation,  crossing legs, or piriformis stretch for 6 months.  He detaches and reattaches 3 tendons with his operations, he advises to take it easy for 6 months and not mess up healing.

July 2020 Biomet Magnum Trispike, Dr Gross. Needed 5cm3 bone graft behind acetabular cup.  That's a whole lot of packed in bone dust I pray heals.

Definitely avoiding those, Danny!  I found a Childís Pose online with knees spread instead of tucked under.  Much easier!  I didnít exceed the 90 degree rule until after the first 6 weeks, per Dr. Gís rules.  Found the Warrior I and II great for psoas stretches.  I stopped doing my prescribed back exercises for deteriorated lower disks that I had been doing for about 30 years when I started Dr. Grossís regimen.  Adding in the light yoga and I really donít miss them.  Something to be said about core strength.

To all you Future Hippies, start doing the exercises that you CAN do before your surgery, especially upper body strengthening.  Youíll thank yourself later (getting out of chairs, off the floor, off the potty, in and out of bed, etc.)!
