Let Those Exercises Resume....

Does anyone care to guess what happens when lazybutt Julia decides to ignore her physical therapist's instructions about doing exercises to minimize the PAIN and LIMP for her trochanteric bursitis?

Hm? Anyone?

Yes. Candy the cane makes a return appearance. Bleah.

Lesson learned.

What kind of exercises does your therapist have you do? Do you have to lie down, sit down and are they painful?

Annie - the exercises basically strengthen my lower abdominal muscles and what my therapist refers to as my "core". So she has me lie on my back and practice keeping my spine and hips neutral while doing all these other machinations with my arms and legs. Requires more concentration than effort, actually. But effective if I am consistent with them.

My guess is... maximized pain and limp. Ouch! I don't feel your pain... but I do have my own and I know what you are feeling. Hang in there!
