Physical Therapy for Hip Replacement

ortho phys TherapyPhysical therapy is an important part of treating orthopaedic injuries. Often orthopaedic providers will prescribe a physical therapy regime as the first line of defense before recommending surgery.

If you have to have hip replacement surgery, physical therapy is also an important part of recovery after surgery. As you return to your normal activities, your orthopedist will likely recommend exercises that will strengthen your legs, ankles, and buttocks. A trained and certified physical therapist can teach you exercises to restore normal hip movement. Your doctor will recommend how frequently you meet with a therapist.
