Not sure what might help

Aug 14, 2017 6:42 PM

So its almost been three weeks since I dislocated my hip. I was doing better on pain but today I am in so much pain. The pain is in my knee and hip. And my leg is just really uncomfortable. I have tried ARP, heating pad, and I'm going to try ice.

Sorry your still in so much pain, I would definitely try ice hopefully that will help. Maybe go back to your doctor and see what they say maybe they could give you some stronger painkillers if your really struggling. I really hope it starts healing soon and the pain eases off. I will be thinking of you 💕

Can you do physical therapy? Chiropractor can help too.

@LittleLola I would go to doctor except he isn't very happy with me for hurting myself again and he also doesn't want me on pain meds, but aleve and ibuprofen are fine.

@LAT the ARP thing is like physical therapy but its supposed to help you heal faster, which it does. But the doctor doesn't want mW to do a ton of movement so we are doing only a few things. Also I would love to go to the Chiropractor but I'm not sure the doctor or physical therapist would like if I did that because I dislocated my hip out of the front and one wrong movement could dislocate it again.
