Re: Training with full hip replacement

Hi Alec,
I know very well one instructor with full hip replacement. He is back to practice with few limitations mentioned above, and very happy. His comment is go as fast as possible, younger you are, better recovery time will be. Also when come to choose the material for replacement, explain to the doctor what you gonna be doing after, it helps to choose a stronger one (sorry forgot a right name of this material). Concerning time recovery the most important in his case was doing regularly with great commitment all those physio exercises.
take care
