Have you just had a hip replacement? With an increasingly aging population and the increased incidence of joint-related disorders, hip replacements are becoming more common. 


Signing up for physiotherapy is essential after a hip replacement surgery to restore your strength, function, and range of motion at the right pace without causing yourself further damage down the line.


Book a session with one of our certified physiotherapists, who will support you through your hip rehabilitation, reduce the pain and bring down the swelling. Before you know it, you’ll be back to your former strength.

What Are Hip Replacements?

Surgical replacements of hips are among the most commonly performed procedures worldwide. They’re often carried out because of a type of arthritis called “osteoarthritis,” it can affect a person’s mobility and function by bringing on serious pain and stiffness to them, affecting their overall well-being.


The surgery replacement includes taking out the damaged joint and putting in a prosthetic implant (either metal or plastic) to restore it back to its original function. This can cause incredible discomfort to patients, so it’s important to start your physiotherapy sessions as soon as possible.

What's Involved in Our Hip Replacement Physio Programme?

Once you’ve had your hip replacement surgery, your doctor will run through a couple of exercises you can do at home to start your recovery. While these can be useful, it’s better to get the help of a professional physiotherapy service like Get Right Physio to handle your rehabilitation correctly. 


Before you can start a recovery programme with us, you’ll have to arrange an appointment with one of our therapists so they can see how you’re doing after your surgery and create your recovery plan accordingly.


During the appointment, the therapist will assess your recently replaced hip to measure its function and determine its capacity to move. 


The main goal will be to minimize the discomfort of your replacement through a range of motion through mild exercises on your abductors. These will assist you in restoring your mobility to carry out everyday tasks such as getting out of bed and walking down the street.


The four objectives for your hip or knee physiotherapy will be:


  • Build your muscle strength
  • Improve your flexibility
  • Enhance your balance
  • Get your joints moving the way they used to
