Will I Need Physical Therapy After Hip Replacement Surgery? by charlestlee

Brian Yee PT, MPhty, OCS, FAAOMPT

It is recommended that you work with a skilled Physical Therapist after hip replacement surgery. The Physical Therapist will coordinate with the operating surgeon to improve your hip range of motion, strength, and progress your weightbearing and walking on your hip appropriately. They will also demonstrate to you safe and proper movement with your hip with functional activities such as sitting to standing, getting in / out of cars, and progress you back to your other functional and recreational goals.
