Re: nearly 6 months after hip replacement did not mention whether you had back pain
before your surgery for your THR or not. If you did than it
probably would come back . I had my right hip resurfaced and the old sciatic pain came back since now i can straight
and have arthritis in the lower lumbar area. I do pilates to
strengthen core muscles and yoga plus dance. I lost 22 lbs
after the surgery because i can move around now. It would
help if you did loose weight, but i doubt that would eliminate the pain. You are on your feet doing hair so i would try to
rest as much as possible when you can lying down flat to take
pressure off your back....Karen

Re: nearly 6 months after hip replacement

Hi Sissors
find a good pilates instructor who understands how to work
core muscles such as the iliopsoas muscle that supports your
back and how to stregthen these muscles. Pilates is expensive but the results are amazing. I am a dancer and had my hip resurfaced two years ago and am in good shape with the exception of the lower back pain that has returned.
After my pilates for the last three months, my stomach is flat and back is in good shape...Karen
