Two new videos available
Here are two new videos on exercise and stretching from the SP Foundation in the USA that are good, simple and easy to follow and use.
These exercises can be done at home without any special equipment. The people doing the exercises and stretching in the videos are HSPers – and that’s a plus!
Thank you so much!! I have HSP and had a hip replacement last November. I am doing well, but want to get back to exercising and stretching and was looking for the best and safest ones for people with my condition. I like the slow tip as I usually do this anyway, but knowing it’s best for me is helpful.
Editor’s Note: A clinical trial in Germany investigated a series of exercises specifically designed for HSP and came up with a set of exercises that have been shown to be significantly more effective than other exercise programs. The program will be available on video in English hopefully in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, here is the German version: https://www.treathsp.net/klinik/physiotherapie
As you have had a hip replacement, if you are thinking of undertaking this program, best to do so with the guidance of your physical therapist.
This disease is so rare that there isn’t much information on it. I am mobile but my body is so tight. my hip/butt hurts always, legs jump, and regular back spasms. My daughter has a case worse than mine. I wish there was more info.
