I am a girl of 25 and I was diagnosed with perthes on my right hip at an age of 11, so pretty old. At that time I had to be in a wheel cheer for a month or so and walked on crutches for about a year. I had to rest a lot an keep my right leg up. After 2,5 years I was able to do everything, form streetdance till soccer. I somethimes had pains when I walked a lot or did my training to hard but it was fine. These last monthes are now different. I have a lot of pains and it seems like my hip is popping out or something (once in a month if i walked to long). I have been to the doktor but their is nothing he can do at the moment. I wonder if some of you have some tips or experiences with this. I am going to swim now more of then and try to build some muscles around my hip. I hope it would work but I would me grateful if you would have some other tips.
For the moms on this blog. This is what helped my when I was younger:
-swimming (every week)
-distraction like tv or games
-keeping warm, especially my feet
-resting but walking//moving once an hour to not be completely stiff.
later on I did a lot of excersize during physiotherapy (like biking, rowing and a lot of balance training), hipmuscles strenghtening, keep my weight under control,good orthotics for my shoes and walking. Also a lot of cycling, i did this almost every day.
In my case this helpt as I did not need the surgery anymore. Even now it is not necessary yet and you also cannot notice that I actual have it. (i walk straight) I hope this information will help you and give you some hope
