Thanks for sharing this information Brent . I had my hip replaced 9 years ago and have never looked back! My therapist was a disappointment when she didn't even know what Pilates was so I 'fired' her and did my own therapy. In two months I was back at my job at a corporate wellness center and back teaching all my classes in 3 months. My classes included Kettle Bell, Hiit, mat Pilates, and Tabata. I've never looked back and the only regret is not doing it sooner. I spent over 2 years living on Aleve and believing I just had to stretch and strengthen more and the pain would go away... I'm now turning 70 and have slowed down a little but still enjoying my active lifestyle and blessed to have had a good surgeon and my Pilates to save my career!
Brent, thank for this series. Fantastic information. Question: how do follow up appointments work when you choose a surgeon so far away? You mentioned that your surgeon gave you the ok to increase your exercise at certain points, but how was he following your progress? Thank you!
I was THRILLED to see this series pop up in my email today. I'm a Pilates instructor in the Boston area 33 days post full hip replacement (doing great) but wondering how I would find a PT who could guide me back to Pilates practice and teaching again this fall. Thank you!!!!
This THA series was fabulous. Brent you are my guru!!! I am a Rehab Tech in an outpatient physical therapy clinic and I am a Pilates instructor where we incorporate Pilates into our rehab everyday. Go Polestar!!!
