post op hip replacement
I have read your books over recent years and followed the general exercise plans particularly for backs, alas, the recent visits to the physio confirmed that my right hip was on its way out and I now have a "newer" hip.
The "rehabilitation" is progressing ever so slow for ( almost 70) one who did pilataes/yoga/swim/cycle and, sorry to mention, run regularly. General fitness, last 10km road race at 67 was 50mins.
What I get confronted with is "don't do this and that" and not a lot of positives. I am "missing" the back exercises as I cannot "bend" too well so what may you suggest to try and to progress?
On another note, joint failure can be down to many "things" but taking into consideration many parts of your books it looks like depth and "quality" of the cartilage and synovial fluid. If we have good thick cartilage and do not have any extra damage like falling off a horse, then provided the joint is lubricated well the joint should last a long time. I consider that the lubrication part may be the key point. Your books go well into movement and exercise to "pump" the fluids to lubricate and clean which is good but, what if the body "system" is not producing enough fluid and how would we know, is there a test for this? That leads me to ask about good nutrition and its part in "joint" quality? Would you care to comment on that and if there may be anything that could be done food wise or by supplement to compensate when the body may not be producing enough synovial fluid?
