Exercises to do 6 weeks after a Total Hip Replacement
You have had a total hip replacement 6 weeks ago but are not sure what exercises you should be doing? We been asked by a lot of people recently local to our private physiotherapy clinics in Havant Rowlands Castle and Horndean what are the exercises I should be doing 6 weeks after my hip replacement.
Patients we been talking to have been given exercises to do but limited guidance about how and when to progress them and how many to do.
We talk with every patient to discuss goals, what they want to be able to achieve, then we provide a full assessment looking at movement, strength, balance, we also look to see if there are any areas of muscle tension/tightness.
Here are some exercises to do if you are now 6 weeks post a total hip replacement (THR).
Please be aware of your body and take advice from your local health care professional before exercising or send an email to (firstname.lastname@example.org) for advice and guidance. When exercising do not push into sharp pain.
