Hip rehabilitation following a total hip replacement is a crucial aspect of the recovery process. It aims to help patients regain mobility, strength, and function in the hip joint while minimising pain and complications. Incline Health Online Program offers services related to hip rehabilitation and total hip replacement recovery. Below are some general guidelines for hip rehabilitation following a total hip replacement:


  1. Early Post-Operative Phase (0-6 weeks):
    • Physical therapy: Begin gentle range of motion exercises and weight-bearing activities under the guidance of a physical therapist.
    • Pain management: Medications and ice can help manage post-operative pain and swelling.
    • Assistive devices: Use a walker or crutches to assist with walking and weight-bearing.
    • Home exercises: Perform prescribed exercises at home to improve flexibility and strength.
  2. Intermediate Phase (6-12 weeks):
    • Continue with physical therapy, focusing on improving strength and range of motion.
    • Gradually reduce the use of assistive devices.
    • Begin more functional activities, such as climbing stairs, getting in and out of a car, and sitting down and standing up from a chair.
    • Monitor incision healing and communicate any concerns with your healthcare provider.
  3. Late Phase (3-6 months):
    • Continue with physical therapy and exercises to improve hip strength and stability.
    • Transition to a more normal walking pattern.
    • Gradually increase the intensity and duration of activities.
    • Discuss a return to work or sports activities with your surgeon.
  4. Long-Term Phase (Beyond 6 months):
    • Continue with a maintenance exercise program to keep the hip joint strong and flexible.
    • Follow up with your surgeon as recommended.
    • Be cautious with high-impact activities or activities that could put excessive stress on the hip joint.
