Before each session I will take a nice hot tub bath, pop a pain killer or muscle relaxer (this really helps), and slowly work up to the necessary flexibility needed .
My husband deserves a "Man of the Year" award.
He will have to compete for that award with my DH
My hip pain is far worse than my SI joint pain and sex in any is almost impossible, at least any position that requires me to open my legs.
My routine is a bottle of wine, hot shower, massage from DH with tons of pillows then afterwards the pain pill (for that after pain and the hangover).
Poor guy is so patient!
I remember the first time I talked to my PT about it, he is a middle age man. His reply " I have a handout for that". Several months later we now talk more openly about it and he is really helping me with achieveing that comfort in that position with stretches and strategy.
