Recovering from hip replacement surgery can be a humbling experience. Healthy people take for granted their mobility and integrated movements. People recovering from joint replacement need to re-learn stability muscle memory and strength. Determined to be in better shape for my next surgery, I enlisted the skills of Valerie Merriweather of Fitwell Training Solutions. In our monthly meetings she gave me a plan of stretching and core stability training that developed by overall strength and my confidence. My second surgery was more extensive, but my recovery was easier. Spending ten minutes on a stationary bike took three weeks to accomplish in physical therapy after my first surgery. I did the exercise easily at the third session of therapy after Valerie's pre-op training. My physical therapists were surprised at the difference. I felt better, moved easier and more confidently. Thank you Valerie for aiding my recovery and giving me a life plan for health.
