No running or twisting or striking. I can swim, do the eliptical, and I'm supposed to start pilates. I can do situps and pushups and start stretching carefully.
How did I know that it was time to get serious about treatment? Well, one definite clue was the day after Thanksgiving when my hip and leg locked and I basically couldn't even walk without great pain.
And so it goes. After a nice run of good health, I'm hobbled.
