MLB Legend, Carlton Fisk Discusses His Recovery From Hip Pain
- Carlton Fisk
"My hip pain was debilitating. And it was to the point that I could not sit anymore for a minute. I was tired of not being able to do stuff. I had a labrum tear, sort of the top and back of my hip. Once that was fixed, it was like a miracle. It wasn’t too long ago that I could not walk like this, but now I can. When that pain goes, the relief is remarkable. With all the modern medical technology, you do not have to live with pain. It is done robotically, arthroscopically, and so great because you can go through the whole process on a computer, so nothing that you go across is going to surprise you. The invasion is a lot less than it used to be back in the day, so the relief is immediate and the recovery is reduced.
If you look around here, there are a lot of reminders of all the athletes. And it is not just to hold folks like me, it is athletes that are active. I recommend if you are in that kind of discomfort, whether you need a cane or you are limping along, there are ways to resolve that."
