    THR Physical Therapy Experiences

    Like you, I’ve heard both sides of the story, good and bad, so mine is just one example. That said, my experience was extremely positive. I did 2 visits in home and then started outpatient. At first it was a combination of stretching and working to get the swelling down. We then progressed...

    THR Coach’s Recovery Thread

    6 months this past Tuesday. Seems like such a long time ago since actual surgery but at the same time, I’ve realized that for about a year, every day I was dealing with that pain in my hip, some days worse than others. Now, for the past 6 months, every day I’ve been focused on my recovery. I...

    THR Coach’s Recovery Thread

    Update on thronchertic bursitis condition: after 3 physical therapy sessions, daily stretching and one round of dry needling, I am in a really improved spot. What felt like a knot on my quad, and a really tight IT band that was causing pain all down the outside of my leg, not to mention a...

    THR Coach’s Recovery Thread

    My PT convinced me to try the dry needling. That along with some stretching and I am feeling significantly better. I’m not back to where I was before this setback but getting close. Going to likely try it again at next session next week. I really can’t get much rest until our season is over...

    THR Hip pain 10 months pst LHR

    @Mimicking did the cortisone shot work for the bursitis? My OS suggested that as well. @DancerHips can you tell me about the dry needling? My PT wants to try that for my IT band / bursitis but I’m not sure about it. Sounds kind of like acupuncture, which I’ve also got no experience with...

    THR Coach’s Recovery Thread

    @Mojo333 my OS agrees with you. He gave me some stretches and sent me back to my PT. It’s been a rough 2 weeks but I’m finally starting to get some relief. Stretching, foam roller, ice, some kind of tool the PT used to work out some knots and some anti-inflammatory and I’m on the mend. My OS...

    THR Coach’s Recovery Thread

    I have slowed down, haven’t done anymore running, hiking or even longer walks for a little over a week now. I can’t believe how sore / stiff I still am. I wouldn’t even say it’s my hip, more the outside of my leg down to my knee. Every time I get up from sitting down, my leg hurts to the...

    THR Coach’s Recovery Thread

    Throughout this whole 4 months, I’ve come home a lot of times sore, or hip very tired, but every time by next day I’m fine. Not this time though. Friday I did that little bit of running and then on Labor Day we did a 3.5 mile hike and had to go down and then back up some steep trails. First...

    THR Coach’s Recovery Thread

    I was wondering why it is that I’m still finding that when I get up from sitting or laying down, the first few steps are painful, causing me to limp, but once I get going it goes away. Originally I chalked it up to stiffness but I’m not sure that’s what it really is? Does this go away? Also...

    THR Coach’s Recovery Thread

    3 month anniversary today. I am back to work, finished with physical therapy, but continuing to do my own daily exercises and try to walk 2-3 miles per day, time permitting. One thing I’ve noticed is that the drastic changes in condition, improvements from week to week, even day to day, have...

    THR Coach’s Recovery Thread

    I just recently found the Bonesmart site. Wow do I wish I’d known of it when I first came home from the hospital. It would have been so helpful. I am right at 5 weeks out from RTHR. For the last 3 nights, when I get home from work, I’ve been almost addicted to reading all of the threads...
