Video 406 | Post-Op Hip Recovery II (30 minutes) with Lauren Eirk
Hips • 20-Feb-2023
This workout is a Part II from Video #404 Post Op Hip Recovery for those at 9-12 weeks 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 #404 video in terms of joint range and load. We begin with chair exercises, then progress to standing work, followed by floor work. We are adding resistance to many of the exercises from the thigh band, sponge ball, and body position. As you continue to learn to observe your limitations, make sure not to push too hard. We are adding some squat and lunge positions to get up and down off the floor as we exercise 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.
