What Causes the Need for a Hip Replacement?
Hip replacements are most commonly due to degeneration of the hip joint. This may be due to bone issues like osteoarthritis or from a previous trauma. Hip replacements involve removing the damaged bone and replacing it with prosthetic parts. This allows the hip to regain lost mobility, strength, and overall function.
Total hip replacements can happen at any age and have become same-day operations for many patients. It is important to make sure your hip is as strong as possible before surgery to ensure quality healing and help you recover faster after surgery. There are a few different approaches to a total hip.
Each approach will affect which muscles may become weak after surgery. Therefore, it is important to work with your surgeon and physical therapist to ensure you are getting the right pre and post-surgical care for your new hip.
Common Symptoms of Hip Arthritis
- Pain along the front of the hip and groin.
- Decreased mobility of the hip, especially flexion and internal rotation.
- Difficulty walking or running is secondary to pain.
- Deep ache in the hip joint.
- Pain and stiffness first thing in the morning.
Treatment for a Total Hip Replacement
Physical therapy after a total hip replacement first involves maintaining mobility and allowing the new joint to heal. This process is different for each surgical procedure so your surgeon will have a better idea of your healing timeline. As the new hip regains mobility it will be important to strengthen all the muscles around the hip joint.
Your physical therapist will work with you through each stage of healing to ensure you are getting the proper exercises to strengthen the new hip. As your strength progresses your physical therapist will work with you to return to your favorite movement activities that you may have not been able to do before surgery. This will involve coming up with specific exercises to fit your movement goals.
The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts in treating all variations of total hip replacements and will help you get back to your normal self.
