Nursing my hip today.

Saturday, July 13, 2013

I was jogging with my trainer yesterday when I suddenly had a crunching, tearing sensation in my left hip. While there was no pain, the joint felt really loose compared to what it normally does, and I suddenly had a whole lot more flexibility in the joint than I have had since I was a child.

Just for safety's sake, I went to get my hip x-rayed today and found out all the mechanical parts are in place and (oddly enough) showed less arthritis in the joint than had been there for years previously and the adhesions that had been there from a prior injury seemed to have disappeared.

Not sure what to make of all this, but I do know my walking gait has changed a bit and I am going to have to adapt to the extended range of motion by strengthening the muscles around the joint that were previously unused...hmmmm!

    Maybe one of the adhesions broke away? My mom had a frozen shoulder once and when it finally popped she was so happy. I hope that is the good news you just learned! Smart to take it slow to make sure all is strong there.

    Hmm. That is odd. Well, take the good news when you can get it with these matters. And do not let any trainers shoot you up with Cortizone, if they are still doing that these days.

    I had a water polo repetitive motion type shoulder injury back in my playing days in college. Let's just say the Cortizone hurt going in, but then made me feel like Superman during the tourneys, and then finally left me with more damage after the last buzzer. Only to repeat the cycle at the next weekend's tourney. Be careful.
