Hey guys, I had surgery to repair a torn labrum in my right hip on August 24th, 2010. I had only 2cm separating me from a total hip at twenty years old. Needless to say, it was difficult pitching, hitting, and rotating with it.
I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this surgery, or if there will be a big difference when I get back to pitching(January)? The labrum in the hip is like the meniscus in the knee or obviously the labrum in the shoulder. Will I have more give, push off, velocity like I once had(almost 90)? Or will it not make much of a difference at all? Just curious.
Since I am on my surgeons program with rehab I’m restricted from a lot of things, but my main focus is gaining more flexibility in my hips, hamstrings, and core through stretching, pilates, and yoga. I am hoping this will help prevent injury and allow a seemless transition back into pitching.
