Rehabilitation Hip Prosthesis

Immediately after the hip operation, various rehabilitation exercises are carried out and supervised by specialist teams. One-on-one care aims to ensure that the patient recovers very quickly and that functional impairments are reduced and eliminated.

Physiotherapy

The aim of physiotherapy is to regenerate and strengthen the musculoskeletal system. Rehabilitation after the use of a hip prosthesis focuses on the following points:

  • Regaining the ability to move the joint
  • Muscle activation
  • Reducing oedema and post-operative pain
  • Promoting wound healing
  • Regaining the correct gait pattern

Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy helps people to live more comfortably after surgery or illness. Training is given on how to use medical mobility aids correctly and how to protect the new prosthesis.

Daily routines are practised through situational exercises so that the patient can return to normal everyday life quickly and without problems.

Exercises for individual training

Individual exercises are compiled that can be easily performed at home to promote joint mobility.
