Indo Board Man had his first physical therapy session at 7pm, 7 hours after his hip replacement. Check out the videos of his first time standing and walking on his new hip.
Indo Board Man was feeling little pain as the doctor injected a steroid medication during the operation that was still in effect. Indo Board Man was ready and raring to go! He reported no pain and an immediate ease to walking with the problems of the osteoarthritic femoral head gone!
He walked 200 feet before the therapist turned him around and walked him back to the room. The therapist was impressed with the smooth movement of muscles in the legs as Indo Board Man was describing the problems prior to surgery. The advantages of the “Anterior Approach” became reality as there was no pain caused by muscles being cut.
So far so good!
