At least my iron levels are getting better!
and Happy Three Month Hipaversery @sequin98
Hope that muscle settles down and you have a good day today.
Here's hoping..acupuncture today!
So my pelvis was rotated, and causing alot of grief for my hip flexors. anyone have this before?
Huh? Rotated when, by who? Tell us more...
Hope you feel better soon
My massage therapist said that my pelvis was rotated, and she was able to set it the right way. I think all the massaging of the hip flexor might of irritated it, I will have to ask my pt tomorrow.
Acupuncturists, Massage Therapists, PT's...oh my!
I hope these people are helping more than hurting.
Let us know how tomorrow goes.
Found this: It occurs when the pelvis rotates backward, causing the front to rise and the back to drop. It is caused by lengthening of the hip flexors and shortening of the hip extensors. As with anterior pelvic tilt, sitting for long periods of time, inactivity, and poor posture all contribute to posterior pelvic tilt.
@sequin98 my pelvis rotated so I walked like a duck before surgery. I couldn't bring it back underneath and it wreaked havoc on my back. After I had my second hip surgery in Nov (first in Sept), I could stand up straight again. It was amazing, but my hip flexors were so sore where they joined at the top of the thigh, where they had to stretch out again. I went to the physio and he did very deep psoas (part of the hip flexor) release on me, through the abdomen. I had it done three times over several weeks. It was supported by specific stretches. It was very uncomfortable as he was doing the release, but that along with the stretching exercises he gave me, really helped. Old habits die hard.
Thanks for the reply!
I had a horrible nightmare last night that caused my to fall out of bed
I hit my head really hard on the bed frame. I came to on my left side. It seems fine, I think I'd know if something popped. I will mention it to my OS on Wed anyway.
