I have a client who fell off a horse when young, doesn’t believe she fractured anything but might have done ligament and/or other soft tissue damage. She can’t remember. However, she can’t use the leg press machine or the standing full elliptical machine, as her hips hurt a day later. What exercises would you suggest I avoid or include in her program design?
Hello Robin Schwartz,
After the client gets checked out or knows exactly what is going on, gets taken care of by doctors; I keep them in a pain free range of motion, also. We start with stretching sessions, then add the strength sessions being careful to listen to the body. The hips may be in a certain position that limits specific movements. We are all the same yet different. I am thinking assisted squat variations and stepping.
