I had another physiotherapy appointment about my hip Wed afternoon, and she gave me a bunch of exercises to do. There appears to be several issues having to do with tendons, cartilage, and my back. She also referred me to a Sport Dr and told me that it would be a few weeks before I'd get in to see one.
Yesterday, I got a phone call that I could come in this morning and see a Sports Dr. That was quick!! He did a whole bunch of tests and he has diagnosed me with greater trochanteric pain syndrome and right lumbar facet joint inflammation in my back. I'm on strong anti-inflammatories to settle the inflammation, plus a set of easier exercises than my physio prescribed. I'm not up to that level yet, which might have been why I struggled with them yesterday. I can also cycle lightly and walk with a short gait.
I'm to go back to my physio next week, and then see him (Sports Dr) again in about 5 weeks.

Machka Of this list, I can do Numbers 5 and 6, just ... and I don't imagine for one minute that Number 1 will ever be possible. Number 1 could be quite easy, you don't need to get your leg straight right off the bat. I would actually recommend starting with a towel or something as is shown in the second stretch, and then just go gently til you can feel the stretch. I realize that because your hamstrings are so tight, that won't be very far, but as with anything else, you have to work up to it. Your first bike ride wasn't 100 k, right?

Machka - I know you are incredibly busy already, but it looks as if an easy yoga class would really help you. I am sorry your body is so stiff. Is there any reason for that? I am nearly 70 and do that kind of exercise every day with ease. Years of easy yoga.
