Post-Surgery Physical Therapy

October 10, 2012 7 comments

If you’ve read my blog you know by now the surgical procedures I had on July 5, 2012 and the reason I underwent surgery. What you haven’t read yet is that I voluntarily started physical therapy about two weeks ago. I felt compelled to do it because I was still having situational (versus chronic) pain in in the area of my outer hip (near the greater trochanter) and in my IT band.

In two weeks of performing very basic exercises every other day, designed to increase my hip and buttock strength, the situational pain has decreased by around 75%. It is nothing short of a miracle in my opinion.

So, to sum it up, if you have had Piriformis Tendon Release, Greater Trochanteric Bursectomy, Sciatic Nerve Neurolysis or all of them at once (like me) please follow it up with physical therapy. It has helped me tremendously in just two short weeks.
