Hello Hip Runners,
I joined because I’m interested in what you all did for your hip before THR. I’m a multi sport athlete and enjoy running and cycling on all different surfaces. This summer my hip started hurting , probably b/c I was doing too much of everything during lockdown. My ortho says the hip is arthritic and will eventually need THR. So, I want to keep running and delay THR as long as possible. I’ve been able to run 1 or maybe 2 marathons per year and would love to run another 1 (or 10).
I’d like to hear what people did to limit pain and keep hip function. Yoga? Meds? Shoes ? Etc.
