Day 72 #HipReplacement Red or Green Band?

Archive, Arthritis, Health, Hips, Hypermobility, Hip replacement, SURGERY

The last few days I’ve not managed to get outside and walk, so it’s been hydro or physio at home.

I’m back on the red band as I can do the exercises with it, with reasonable ease. But I’m debating whether that’s good or not? Like is it wise to do more reps with low resistance, or low reps with high resistance? Definitely something to ask at hydro next week.

Back to

  • Glute exercise 20 reps x 2
  • Quad exercise 20 reps x 2
  • Heel Slide 20 reps x 2
  • Hip abduction 20 reps x 2
  • Single leg raise 20 reps x 2
  • Short Arc quad 20 reps x 2
  • Clam side drop 20 reps x 2
  • Ankle ball squeezes 20 reps x 2
  • Knee ball squeezes 20 reps x 2
  • Long arc quad 20 reps x 2

Used the RED band throughout, and 2 sets took 40 mins. I felt a few twinges around the groin, nothing to worry over but enough to need rest and hot water bottles.

Following rest and warming of the joints I carry in with these

  • Hip flexion 20 reps x 2
  • Hip abduction 20 reps x 2
  • Hip extension 20 reps x 2
  • Heel to butt 20 reps x 2
  • Mini squats 20 reps x 2
  • Step ups 20 reps x 2
  • Monster walk 20 reps x 2

Feel it in the butt when I do the mini squats, and admittedly the hip flexion isn’t my friend either. Pulls at the groin, and hip flexor. These 2 sets took 40 mins as well. Did both legs as well, so that’s only my second time of including the opposite hip on the standing exercises. Feels good but quite hard.

At least I don’t have to focus on my hands and their pain while doing these exercises.
