I have had a hip replacement and am working hard to strengthen my abductor muscles. Your site showed me some exercises I was unaware of, but more importantly some stretches that I really need. I have bookmarked this site. Thank you.
This is my first time to see this type of stretching. As we know stretching is one good way to stay in shape and be more flexible.
As a Physical Therapist Assistant, I am responding to John Armstrong''s message of Thursday 25th February 2010 at 10:09:53 AM as well as to the ABC OF FITNESS site. Be aware that person''s who have had a hip replacement should not be crossing their legs as in this Abductor Stretch and should always check with their physician or physical therapist before adding exercises/stretches that include crossing legs, flexing hip beyond 90 degrees, or internally rotating the hip secondary to the possibility of dislocation. Person''s with knee replacements must be careful of activity that rotates the knee.
I know this genlemen posted a year ago but if anyone else sees his post I hope they will read mine as well and take heed.
BTW: I am very pleased with this website-;thank you for this resource and the opportunity to share my opinions and thoughts.
