Just wanted to say....I had my hip replacement surgery mid June and the pain was immediately gone! I was up and getting physical therapy same day, had 6wks of physical therapy and since then I've been doing aquasize/swimming 4-5 times a week. My walking is normal again and I notice improvement all the time. My surgeon said full recovery is 6-12 months and I must say after 3months I am doing great. I sure hope you guys will be able to get relief soon. I was so pleased with my surgeon and the result...if my other hip gets very bad I will not hesitate to get that one done as well!
If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, you might think perhaps you should rest your feet, but it’s actually better for you to keep on the move. Plantar fasciitis affects the band of tissue connecting your heel bone to your toes, and can cause stabbing pains when walking. A treatment for it is to keep moving, but make sure you don’t overdo it. Keep your mileage and speed down if you begin experiencing pain, and place an ice pack under your foot for 15 minutes after you’ve finished walking. An alternative is to roll a frozen bottle of water under your foot for 10 to 15 minutes instead. Adding support to your foot can also help, so using an insole in your shoe or wrapping your foot with athletic tape is also recommended.
