IT Band issue

I wonder if anyone has had IT Band issues with THR? Probably, right? Okay. I think I have had it or currently have it. I know all the exercises and what happens to cause IT et al, however, because the IT was snipped in surgery, should I be careful putting too much strain on it when stretching etc?

Does or has anyone put their leg under them and laid on it – you know, so your body weight is over the leg? I am deathly afraid of too much contortion because I fear dislocation as much as I fear spiders and Marti Gras.

Thoughts?

  1. Christopher,
    Why are you afraid of Mardi Gras? I’ve never been to one, but it seems like it would be fun.
    Should I be afraid?

  2. I have IT band pain. I Do yoga twice a week and stretch daily to help with the muscle pain in my hip region. I had double hip replacement at 38! I do weight lifting and use elliptical trainer. Do run sometimes about 4km but not a great runner post hip replacement. Very slow and plodding!! Get a foam roller and roll out your IT band and a spikey ball. Stretch it every day and build up your gluteus muscles. Hope that helps!!
