Post-surgery Rehab

About Post-surgery Rehab
Other types of surgeries for the hip are fracture repairs using pinning or repair from trauma. The amount of force it takes to break bone means that the soft tissues around the hip are most likely significantly injured also. After surgery, due to limited movement, range of motion is lost as well as strength, rather quickly. Since walking is a very complex action of different muscles moving in a coordinated action, it can be difficult to walk after a hip surgery.

How physiotherapy helps
Physiotherapy is an important part of the rehabilitative process after a hip surgery. Depending on your surgery and your physician’s protocols, we will gently progress you through a structured rehabilitation program. The goal is to restore pain-free range of motion in the hip while maintaining surgery recovery protocols. Finally, walking coordination, balance and strength are improved so you can return to normal pain-free walking. Call us today to learn more about our post-surgery rehabilitation program.
