Rehabilitation After Hip Replacement

A rehabilitation program is an important part of the recovery after hip replacement. The program is designed to restore your strength and ability to return to your activities over time.

This post-operative protocol is a general guideline that you can follow to ensure that you are progressing properly after your surgery. Remember that every person is different, and your specific progression through the protocol may be faster or slower. Do not rush ahead to do more challening exercises if what you are doing does not feel strenuous. You may go slower if it feels too difficult. Your body needs time to heal. Work closely with your physical therapist to ensure that your rehabilitation is successful. Please call us if you have any questions about the protocol.
