Martin benefits from shinfinTM fins for standing and walking leg exercise work-outs, as part of his aquatic therapy for osteonecrosis (avascular necrosis, bone infarction). So he uses them as recommended by his physiotherapist. He opens and closes his hips and strengthens his legs by swinging them forward, backward and sideways. Furthermore, for sideways kicking, he adjusts the fins around to the sides of his legs. He also finds the extra speed and straighter legs of shinfinTM fins for freestyle kicks more psychologically rewarding.
Martin’s review from Hong Kong
“The shinfinTM product has been working well for me. Also using it for aquatic therapy. Doing exercises standing in the pool with the fins, gives more resistance and more of a work-out for strengthening. Most of the exercises have been about swinging the legs forward, backward, sideways, and doing opening and closing of the hip.”
Martin’s review: Aquatic therapy exercise fins for osteonecrosis
“The shinfinTM product has been working well for me. Used it a couple of times and enjoyed the straighter legs in the freestyle kicks. Getting more speed out of one’s kick is rewarding psychologically. Also using it for aquatic therapy. Doing exercises standing in the pool with the fins, gives more resistance and more of a work-out for strengthening.”
Yes we get a lot of feedback like that. More streamlined kicking helps to get your legs straighter, with less drag. More “rewarding psychologically” is a good way of expressing what a lot of people feel when they use them.
Here is more information about aqua aerobics pool exercises that you may also find helpful. What kind of exercises have you been doing? Have you experimented with moving the fins around to the side of your lower legs for sideways strengthening movements?
“Yes, I have moved the shinfinTM fins to the side and do sideways movements and walking. Most of the exercises have been about swinging the legs forward, backward, sideways, and doing opening and closing of the hip.”
“I’m suffering from oesteonecrosis stage one in the hip femoral heads. The physiotherapists have taught me these exercises in the aquatic pool they have. I bought the fins so I can practise at the pool downstairs of my home, skipping the trip to the aquatic center to be less frequent.”
“Yes you can use some of the quotes. Thanx.”
Thank you for your kind permission Martin. Personal recommendation is very important to help a new product like this along, so I really appreciate it.
