Video 408 | Post-Op Hip Recovery III (30 Minutes) with Lauren Eirk
C.P.I. Chronic Pain and Inflammation • 27-Feb-2023
This workout is progression from Video #406 "Post Op Hip Recovery II" for those at three months to a year post-op. Remember that 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.
In this video, we are progressing some of the exercises in the Post Hip Recovery #406 video in terms of joint range and load. We will use the chair only as needed with our standing work, particularly when standing on one leg. This workout will be using external load coming from the dumbbells as well as the thigh band for more challenge. As you continue to learn to observe your limitations, make sure not to push too hard. We are progressing the squat and lunge positions with faster transitions as we train 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.
