Wow, I think I have solved my own hip pain problem.
I was trying to do a Psoas stretch on the Swiss ball. Sort of like this, but a little bit more stability was involved in my stretch.
Anyway I felt a POP. and immediate tenderness in the groin. It swelled up and I sort of freaked out, stopped stretching and limped home and iced like crazy. I considered going back on crutches. I was quite worried.
The next day…voila, the swelling had gone down, the tugging sensation I have had since surgery was gone and my hip now moves much more freely than before.
I told the PT, who looked at me like I was crazy, until he saw me walk…He was very surprised and told me I was “walking the best I have ever seen you walk, including before the surgery”.
I probably had an adhesion formed right after the surgery. The Psoas stretch popped it loose. Thank goodness that was what it was.
He had me skip the trampoline, and at my request did a Psoas release stretch, and had me walk after that, stating that now I was walking even better than earlier.
I Have not really had much pain since.
I went to get a prescription filled today and after wandering about the store finally decided to sit. For the first time in forever, I actually could sit in relative comfort with no concerns regarding the hip.
And then I did work on the trampoline.
Things are good. good good.
