Rehabilitation and Exercise

At Home

Following surgery, your physical therapist may help you with your rehabilitation protocol. In addition to the exercises done with the therapist, you should continue to work on the hip exercises in your free time. It is also important to continue to walk on a regular basis to further strengthen your hip muscles. An exercise and walking program helps to enhance your recovery from surgery and helps make activities of daily living easier to manage. Here is a list of potential exercises that you may be asked to perform:

  • Ankle Pumps
  • Quadricep Sets
  • Gluteal Sets
  • Heel Slides
  • Leg lifts
  • Knee Extensions
  • Hip Abduction
