Yoga Wonders during Injury

Now that I know I have had torn cartilage in my right hip and that it was pulling away at the labrum for the past two years explains alot! And its amazing to me that I actually did bikram & moksha hot yoga for two years WITH torn cartilage. My standing bows were awesome. It's no wonder that I always dreaded Dandayamana Bibhaktapada Paschimottanasana. Of course! I used to stand up after Ardha Chandrasana, Pada Hastasana and wonder, hm and I the only one with a burning sensation down my the back of my inner thigh. Happy baby and cobblers pose were also not my favorite. It also hurt to jog, ride a bike, walk, sit, and I even did several months of high impact water aerobics which was great till they had me walk across the pool sideways...bad bad bad. It took 10 MRIs yep 10 for the bewildered doctors, at my untiring insistence, to discover the true cause of my pain. At least it is no longer a mystery. Although I read today that the microfracture technique can take up to two years to fully grow strong new cartilage, so it seems I have a long road ahead.....
