Video 404 | Post-Op Hip Recovery (30 minutes) with Lauren Eirk
Everything • 13-Feb-2023
Regaining your range of motion and strength after total hip replacement or hip surgery is critical to regaining your ability to do the things that are important to you. Exercising has multiple benefits including: reducing stiffness, maintaining flexibility, improving muscle strength, and preventing blood clots.
It is often difficult for people to know what to do post-surgery to heal their hip joint. These exercises are designed to help you in the early recovery stages, but are general in nature. Always check with your doctor for your particular case. You will need a chair and a small sponge ball for support and resistance.
We begin with chair exercises, then progress to standing work, followed by floor work. Learn to observe your limitations and not push too hard. It will take time to recover, and resolve pain / inflammation from muscle weakness. I will show exercises in the cardinal planes of motion of the hip using progressive joint angles.
This therapeutic routine can also be helpful for chronic hip pain and instability. I am taking a full body approach, with foot, ankle, knee, hip and spinal related exercises. Enjoy lots of modifications to make the exercises work for you.
