Hip Mobility Exercises After Hip Replacement Surgery

This is a brief look at a series of conservative hip mobility exercises that one can try with the approval of his or her physiotherapist following hip replacement surgery. In most cases, it's advisable to do just the first few exercises over the first week, and to build upon those movements on a gradual basis as the body allows for it.

These exercises are also generally helpful to those who have significant limitations in their hip mobility due to degeneration of the hip joints, presence of scar tissue, a history of labral tears, ongoing impingement, and other relatively common chronic hip issues.

Please be sure to work with your personal physician, physiotherapist, or mobility specialist in deciding on which of these exercises you try and at what pace and intensity.
