Re: hip replacement can't do straight leg raises pain
I had a total hip replacement on 11/30/09. After a month or two, i started having issues with flexion and pain involving the psoas - (leg lift, putting on pants, getting in and out of car). Have tried pt, pilates, active release therapy, etc. I am beginning to think it is iliopsoas impingment - but cannot reach my doc tor until May 3. Have you resolved your problem - I understand cortisone injections have some success and sometimes surgery is indicated.have you had any successful treatment? any suggestions on what my next step might be? Was your diagnosis confirmed by an xray or mri? Any guidance you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
