1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two sessions of PT. Started a few new strengthening exercises for my glutes and hip. We are realizing that if we release (through OMT) my hip flexor area, glute, and tightness down my leg, my hip feels better.
  • Two days of Home Rehab. Interval run/walks. Three rounds of 10 different strengthening exercises. I will find my abs again. I will.
  • Week 3 of the Postpartum challenge. Down 7 pounds.
  • Why I go to Dr. Rosen regularly:

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Three PT’s: Elliptical, bike, scap strengthening, core strengthening, heat, stim, OMT, and dry needling. STILL hip pain. Gah. I’m thinking I need to tackle the core more so that’s the goal for the next appointment.
  • Home Rehab: Walks outside at an incline. Weights and squats. Core and scaps. Light Stretching!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Prolo on Monday. Dr. C thinks things got stretched out from labor, and I have since sprained my hip and both SI joints. Prolo in the hip capsule, both SI joints, and groin.
  • 1 Day of PT. OMT only since it was the day after prolotherapy and I felt it was best to give it a chance to work.
  • Lots of time on my trusty heating pad this week.
  • 1 shrink visit. Starting to taper one of my meds. Fingers crossed.
  • 1 Infusion. Had to wait to start while they called my docs since my blood pressure was too low. They determined I was okay enough to do the infusion and thankfully did not have to go anywhere.
