Re: dancing after hip replacement surgery. Posted by Carol 11/5/2014 5:44:00 PM
Check out the website dancer hips.com. It has a LOT of useful info & some very encouraging stories.
I'm not a competitive ballroom dancer, but I was a very good salsa dancer---dancing several times/week. I have bone-on-bone hip arthritis & need surgery eventually. I'm not in much pain now, but I can't really enjoy dancing because of limited range of motion in my hip. However, I'm worried that after a hip replacement the quick turns & Cuban motion of salsa will still be off-limits & I still won't be able to enjoy dancing.
Are there any salsa dancers with good stories about dancing after hip replacement? Thanks
