Things are moving slow around here. It's been about 3 weeks now that I've laid off the bells and have been performing my physical therapy exercises. I still have pain in my hip which only seems to feel better when I pop Aleve.
What has become apparent is the large strength imbalance between my right and left hip. According to my therapist, now that it's obvious we can focus on strengthening the imbalance and that should help alleviate the pain. Let's see how another week at this goes, shall we?
It now also appears quite obvious that I carry my right hip higher than my left. Is it a compensation for the weaker left? Is it from a prior injury? Is one leg just a bit longer than the left??? We haven't answered any of this yet. Hopefully something will kick in soon because I'm getting frustrated.
