@yoga&hike - Ha! I had to click on that link to see Pigeon's Pose... Don't think I was ever able to do that, you will have to ask that question of the OS's you meet with . This is what I can do - touch the palms of my hand to floor keeping my legs straight. I can pull both knees up to my chest. I can sit cross legged... I believe it is proven that Dual Mobility has better ROM, what they don't have the long term data is for longevity with the new highly crosslinked vitamin infused plastic although registries show same wear at about the 8-10 year mark. There are some movements that are discouraged but frankly I can't recall. Dr. Bruckner told me to live my life. He preferred I didn't run but said if I had to that walk/run intervals would be preferred. I'm not doing that anyway to protect the other hip... I didn't seek out Dual Mobility, it is what Dr. Bruckner uses. He was recommended by many and the first OS I saw. Dr. Claubeaux uses it too. I think it is more of a OS preference as opposed to something driven by a clinics direction (perhaps none there are familiar as it does only account for about 5% but is gaining popularity). I never saw Dr. Pritchett as the metal/metal aspects of resurfacing concerned me and I didn't see the benefit of ceramic resurfacing or plastic resurfacing (not enough data for me at this point)... Happy to help with questions at anytime!
