When I came to PT I had just come off crutches and was not able to walk or stand for long stretches of time. I was frequently ‘tweaking’ my hip injury, and the pain would last for days afterward. I also had a fair amount of difficulty getting in and out of the car. As I progressed, I was able to walk longer and longer distances with less pain. Laura developed some techniques to help me get in and out of bed and the car more easily. Towards the end of treatment, I began running for short distances on the treadmill using a graduated progression. I am now able to run for almost 30 minutes straight (about a 5K). Although I still have occasional pain, it is much less intense and quickly disappears. I am confident that I will make a full return to the activities I was doing before surgery.
