Is it usually safe to go snowboarding five months after getting a total hip replacement?

Is it usually safe to go snowboarding five months after getting a total hip replacement?

Depends: Each surgeon will allow their patients to go back to different exercises and activities. Many physicians will allow their patients to ski, in a very casual, controlled manner after a joint replacement. This is a discussion you need to have with your particular surgeon. Prior to returning to any sports... Make sure your legs are very strong and up to task! :-). ...Read more

Is it safe to go snowboarding 5 months after getting a total hip replacement?

Is it safe to go snowboarding 5 months after getting a total hip replacement?

Increased risk: Snowboarding 5 months after hip replacement may not be the best idea. The muscles around the hip are still healing. The bone around the prosthesis is still healing to the prosthesis. This puts you at increased risk for dislocation of the prosthesis or a fracture around the prosthesis. You need to have a discussion with the surgeon that did the replacement for a definitive answer. ...Read more

My hip/lower back has had sharp pain when i get up/move at odd angles & aches when i walk. Thought it might be from snowboarding. Any thoughts?

My hip/lower back has had sharp pain when i get up/move at odd angles & aches when i walk. Thought it might be from snowboarding. Any thoughts?

Yes.: It could be from snowboarding. You may have strained the muscles in your low back and/or hip. You can try icing the area for 20 minutes at a time, 3-4 times per day, and take an anti-inflammatory medication such as advil or aleve (naproxen). If your not better in a couple of weeks, please see a non-surgical sports medicine specialist, who would be able to sort out your symptoms. ...Read more

A few weeks ago a snowboard fell on my shin. Now there is a dent on the bone. Will it eventually heal so it would be safe to train martial arts?

A few weeks ago a snowboard fell on my shin. Now there is a dent on the bone. Will it eventually heal so it would be safe to train martial arts?

Dent in shin: It may take from three to six weeks to heal a fracture with a callous formation. If you don't have pain prognosis is good. X rays help to assure that the fracture has healed. An orthopedic or sports injury physician should clear you to start martial arts. If you have no pain or range of motion abnormalities you may protect yourself with some soft elastic brace to support your soft tissue. ...Read more

6 weeks post clavicle (mid) fracture 5.5 weeks post op (orif) rt. Clavicle not sure I am able to resist snowboarding anymore, am i somewhat safe 2 go?

6 weeks post clavicle (mid) fracture
5.5 weeks post op (orif) rt. Clavicle

not sure I am able to resist snowboarding anymore, am i somewhat safe 2 go?

Probably not: It very much depends on your most recent x-rays. I would wait to see some bone bridging the fracture site. I would not want to rely on just the plate holding the fracture especially if you fall. Also i would avoid any drops because you could strike the clavicle with your knee upon landing thereby displacing the fixation. ...Read more

What sex positions are safe to do with a recent hip replacement?

Ask your hip surgeon: Your hip replacement surgeon will know best exactly which positions are safe for your hip, so definitely ask your surgeon in the end. In general, the same guidelines provided to you by your therapist and surgeon regarding safe positions for all activities of daily living also apply to positions during sexual activity. Commonly, patients are told to avoid bending forward at the hip past 90 degrees. ...Read more

Is weight trainning safe to do for someone with snapping hip syndrome?

Is weight trainning safe to do for someone with snapping hip syndrome?

Yes: Snapping hip can have different diagnoses associated with this terminology. It usually involves a snapping psoas tendon. If you aren't having pain while doing the weight conditioning you are ok. If you repeatedly "snap" the tendon or hip it may lead to groin pain from repetitive irritation of the capsule or tendon. I'd let pain be your guide. Avoid the position or exercise if it hurts. ...Read more
