Not an injury .. yet? .. but getting a little nervous about the state of my left shoulder and also right hip...

Had the left hip replaced a few years ago and after a lotta PT and exercises, and time, it's good again. At that time the Ortho had said I'll probably be back for the right side...

Just wanna make it thru this season whole and able to swing 🤞🤞🤞

I hope you can make it through the season without having any problems with either one. I'm hoping to hear good things coming from your lessons.

Hope the hip holds up! Hopefully you won’t need an cortisone injection to get you through the year.

Thx! We'll see... Usually everything's 'ok' enough but recently been a little achy and guess I just had to vent!

Thx!! Funny was contemplating a trip to the ortho and asking about one. The problem has been these very occasional but very sharp spasms.

About year a year prior to the left hip surgery I'd gotten a PRP (platelet rich therapy) injection and that actually helped keep me going for most of that year. Only drawback is that procedure needs a little recovery time.....

Typically I think my clinic asks patient to give it about 2-3 weeks of downtime with some light therapy in between.

Well.. only a few days later, and .. yep I did it.... Except ...

Injured the left hip, the one that was surgically repaired/replaced 4+ years ago. 

Not even a full swing .. just under 100 yd approach from the rough on an uneven lie .. targetward was uphill and the ball was slightly below the feet. Had a stable stance and got the shot off, tho pulled it left of intended line .. turned back to look at grass and check my swing line and POP! went (something?) on the left side...

Seeing the ortho tomorrow .. been meaning to visit anyway as the right hip is starting to bother me 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Oooffff that sucks good luck, the good thing is you needed to go about the other hip so this gave you an excuse.

 

 

 

was working out yesterday before work and felt a slight twinge in my back. Been walking like y’all old farts since and I’m in my early 30’s. Trying to loosen my back up since because I have a golf outing for one of my best friends tomorrow. We are doing a golf day for his bachelor party and I don’t want to not golf.

I have an appointment set with the orthopedic surgeon on June 20 to talk about my knee and how badly it's been acting up the past 6-8 months. On the good side it's not locking up or giving out on me at all, but even with a brace on when I'm on my feet for an extended period of time or doing a lot of strenuous activity, it hurts for days afterwards. To the point where my right hip is now hurting too due to the overcompensation. My buddy is a surgical tech and does a lot of the cases this particular doc has, he was going over all the different things that could end up resulting here. Best case it's just a scope and a few days rest, worst case it's a lot of work on my meniscus and I'm out of action 4-6 weeks. Fingers crossed for best case!!

Good luck.  Sounds like we are taking similar routes.  Only difference when I asked Orthopedic Doc to scope meniscus he said no, I don’t have a enough left to scope.  I went with GelSyn to get thru Covid.  I hope the Scope will do it for you.

Thanks everyone!

Perhaps the most disappointing part of the whole thing is... It was *such* a beautiful day out there that day .. perfect weather, perfect temp, great playing partners, course in literally perfect condition (not too dry, not too soft), greens were rolling fast and true, no one pressing us from behind, ...

So it goes!

Thx!!

So got back from the ortho and I can tell my wife Dr. Mom 😉 that no, I didn't displace the joint out its socket, but I may have torn the "IT band" which is a pretty major connector from the leg to the pelvis... A few more days rest (IF I can stand it) then back yet once more to see my friendly local PT - who happens to be a good golfer!

I hope it's not the psoas.  I did something to mine on my right side and it's bother me for a month now.  It finally stopped spasming a couple of days ago; being doing my stretches and stopped crunches.  I'm too old for this!!  Literally!!

Don't think so, tho haven't seen the PT yet. From what I understand the psoas is more in the front of the thigh and lower abdomen, vs what I damaged towards the side and back of the upper thigh. See what happens as you get older and you inadvertantly (unwantedly really!) get schooled in all this anatomy and medical stuff..?

FYI two treatments for severe spasms that have helped me are TENS (electro stim) therapy and "trigger point" injections (a small dose of muscle relaxers applied directly into the muscle).

I don't know much about the psoas muscles but I know they connect your spine to your femur, so yes they can be a source of pain in the low back on each side.  They are important for standing and walking, and in my case... getting out of bed in the morning.  The spasms were excruciating, but then the pain is gone when I get up.  (Notice I said "were"; the spasms have ceased.)  I've been doing core strengthening exercises (without crunches because that may have exacerbated the issue to begin with).  I think that because they were weak, I was overusing other muscles in my back... dang, it's hard getting old.

News flash!!  I went to the doc this morning for my annual medicare wellness check. (First time with my new doc).  One of the questions on the form I had to fill out was:  "Hope would you rate your health compared to others your age?"  I had no idea how to answer that... mostly because I don't associate with anyone my age.  My wife is ~9 years younger, and many of the people I play golf with are younger still.  When the doc finished, I asked:  "You see a lot of people my age.  How would you rate my health compared to them?"  The doc said:  "Much better than the average 75-year old!!"  So I got that going for me... which is nice!

I'm doing my best to get rid of all my aches and pains before our PNW Meet-Up.  Probably not going to happen; life gets in the way for people 75+!!

Oh BTW, I removed grips that were glued on last Monday and my right thumb is swollen and very sore. Using air to put grips on and take off is so much easier, but a friend of mine wanted some Dynamic Gold S300 shafts I had lying around; I will definitely not be using them... ever!!
