Post-Operative Rehab

This program was developed for active individuals who intend to return to athletics and athletic style training following a hip surgery. It is intended to bridge a gap between traditional rehabilitation and return to sport. Once you have achieved adequate range of motion, flexibility, and muscle strength (usually 10-12 weeks following surgery) the next step is using what you have achieved in physical therapy and start moving well enough to return to sports.

The TRX suspension trainer is a great tool to help you reach your goals and return to athletics.

  • It uses your own body weight as resistance.
  • It can be used to unload your body to decrease joint stress.
  • It's portable and can be used anywhere.
  • It engages important core musculature that is necessary to move properly.

5 Post Operative Tips
  • Ice as often as possible to reduce inflammation.
  • Listen to your body. If something hurts it is best to avoid it. You may feel tired in the weeks following surgery. Don't try to push through, give your body the rest it needs.
  • Follow Doctors Instructions regarding precautions, weight bearing, lifting, and return to activities.
  • Don't compare yourself to others who had similar procedures. Remember everyone heals at a different pace and you need this time to let your hip recover.
  • Avoid pivoting on involved leg and avoid sitting in low chairs or couches.
