I am very bent over in posture am waiting for 2nd hip replacement but i am told my bent over posture is muscular but i am probably beyond exercise to lengthen the muscles . is there an operation that can help ???tenotomy
I see from your photograph that you are very bent over, I am sure the pain caused by this and the need for a second hip replacement means that you are indeed struggling with a lot of pain.
I attach a number of links that might be of interest to you
May I suggest that you talk to your GP and/or hospital team about a possible operation to help with tentomy and different pain relief to help during this obviously painful experience.
Meanwhile there are numbers of members of the online community who will be able to offer their advice and support
We look forward to hearing from you again.
I hope you get your 2nd hip replacement sooner rather than later.
You are stooped over I can see from your photo. Must give you neck ache trying to see where you are going 😕
I think there are lots of reasons why this might be the case and surely 'they' can help a bit at least with physio???? Have they done MRIs to see what is going on in your back? I only say this because post my back operation I was very bent forwards myself due to I think me protecting myself from the pain.
If i were you I would make sure I've ruled out everything possible to straighten things even a little bit.
