I actually don’t think I need much guidance at the moment…I just wanted to write to say THANK YOU.
I had chronic hip pain for years before having bilateral hip arthroscopy in 2011, which did very little at all. After having my first kid in 2015 I went back to the orthopedist who ordered and MRI and said there was a lot of damage in my hips (labral tears, cartilage thinning, bone hardening, etc.) and sent me off to do physical therapy which was not effective whatsoever. Since my second kid was born in 2016 I’ve basically been an absolute mess. Nearly everything I did would throw my back out (sometimes even coughing or sneezing!) and I felt like I didn’t have the strength to live my own life! Out of desperation I went back to the orthopedist again and he recommended cortisone shots, another MRI and, pending those results, a conversation about replacement.
This was totally unacceptable to me so I started my own research and first found the Upright Health videos then the FAI Fix. It’s been a month and I’ve seen DRAMATIC change. My hips are still soooooo tight but slowly but surely they’re getting better and I’m starting to feel strong enough to play with my kids, lift them up when I need to, carry groceries without feeling like I have to hobble around for weeks after! So thank you , thank you. I’m starting to really dial in on what muscles are the most problematic for me and when I need more info there always seems to be an Upright Health video to teach me exactly what I need. So really I can’t thank you enough. I’ll be in touch if and when I do need more guidance!
