My guests today are Dr. Kelly Starrett and Laird Hamilton. Each of
us have had one of our joints replaced and we thought it would be
fun and hopefully helpful to share our experiences. When did each
of us realize after exhausting every route that the joint
replacement surgery was the best idea?
We discuss how to physically and mentally prepare for surgery, and share what physical therapy modalities were helpful for us.
Like Kelly said "the surgery is the beginning of the journey" and what we do after is key. This conversation can be a tool for most athletic surgeries. Believe me, between us we have had lots of time and experience around "healing" and "getting better".
