Total Hip Replacement
Total Hip Arthroplasty (Hip Replacement Surgery) is a surgical procedure used to replace a damaged or diseased hip joint with an artificial joint. The procedure is often recommended for patients with severe osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or other conditions that affect the hip joint. OrthoRehab provides rehabilitation following total hip arthroplasty and is a crucial part of the recovery process. Physical Therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation, improve range of motion, reduce scar tissue, and strengthen the muscles around the hip joint.
At OrthoRehab, our experienced physical therapists will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals. Your treatment plan may include:
- Exercises are an important part of rehab following total hip arthroplasty. Your therapist will guide you through exercises designed to improve range of motion, strength, and flexibility in the hip joint. These may include gentle stretching, low-impact aerobic exercises, and strength-training exercises using weights or resistance bands.
- Manual therapy may also be used to help alleviate pain and improve mobility in the hip joint. Your therapist may use techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilization, and stretching to help you regain function in your hip.
- Education is an important part of rehabilitation following total hip arthroplasty. Your therapist will help you understand the recovery process, teach you strategies to prevent future injury, and instruct you on how to modify your daily activities to avoid aggravating your hip.
