After 14 weeks of zero physio in the hospital, while being assessed by my physiotherapist, I had an appointment over the phone.
We discussed how my lunge onto the bosu ball, or going to do steps, is making the hip feel like it’s popping out, she feels it’s a muscle issue, so to shorten the step, and dip shallower to build it up slower. And do little but often.
And to maybe try a kneeling lunge if knees allow it, to take some pressure off.
But as I do have sore knees, I may have to do these with a cushion under the knee first.
Or I was given the option to swap forward lunges for side lunges and see if they both cause same pains, or if this one doesn’t.
We touched upon the encroaching groin pain from the left, the limitations it’s presenting and we decided the ROH should be approached for an appointment for that hip.
But I’ll be honest I’m not hopeful, I have one set for Feb 2021 and I may wait until then anyways. As I know they have some serious backlogs as it is. And physio itself may not be face to face until October, I’m sure I won’t see a consultant before Feb 21 anyways.
* Finally started exercise besides walking at home again, need to help this dodgy left hip while I can. And lose some lockdown weight!! *
