Hip Hemiarthroplasty Rehab Protocol
Keys to a Successful Outcome
As the pain begins to subside, it is important to progressively increase physical activity, such as walking, to avoid deconditioning.
Once you complete physical therapy, continue performing the strengthening exercises at home on a regular basis to maintain strength.
Use your FWW at all times when walking during the first six weeks. Even if the distance is minimal, it is important to be cautious to reduce the risk of re-injuring the surgical site.
* Posterior hip precautions for 6 weeks.
