Please join me for the One Day More Fitness January 2022 Seated Chair Yoga Challenge that starts tomorrow.
We focus on one specific chair yoga pose every day which I post photos and instructions for daily.
While I use blocks, straps and yoga towels to modify my poses you can do them in any way that work for you, and remember, for anyone following this challenge, if you come across a pose you can’t do for whatever reason, please message me and I will send you modifications for it! Don’t just assume you have to skip because I will make it work for you if you reach out to me, I just can’t fit every modification into my posts!
All images used in this challenge are from #tummeeyoga.
I saw the orthopedist today and I have some answers and a plan!
So I have Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome - definition: “Trochanteric bursitis may affect the hip's outer area, or the outside part of the upper leg, from the hip to the knee along the thigh.
Symptoms include pain on the outside of the hip that's worse with activities such as standing, walking, or running.
Treatments include ice, anti-inflammatory medications, steroid injections, and physical therapy. Weight loss might help.”
There are calcium deposits on the outside of my hip area and it’s affecting a lot of my muscles there including the glutes and IT Band.
On top of that it’s obvious on my X-ray that my left femur is crooked due to the break I had as a kid and my left leg is actually slightly longer than my right and it’s thrown off my entire body which explains a lot!
Luckily we have a plan. I’m going back to physical therapy in January for the trochanter issue and hopefully for my back. They also gave me an insert for my shoe to try and even out my legs and if things get really bad I can always get a steroid injection into that hip area but I’d like to avoid that for as long as possible.
So I’m happy. I might still be in a lot of pain but there’s reasons and solutions for it so I’m excited for getting it under control!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
