Before your surgery it is important to maintain an active lifestyle so that the muscles around your hip stay strong.
Research has shown that patients who do an exercise program pre operatively have a quicker recovery than those who don’t.
Knowing what to expect, practicing drills on early post-op management and exercising before your surgery will help you to increase your confidence and ability to exercise after your operation.
At SSC we run weekly prehabilitation classes in our physiotherapy department gym.
This class consists of an education section where you learn about your surgery and what to expect.
We also give you exercises to help you prepare for your surgery, and practice using crutches so you can be confident after your surgery and during your rehabilitation. We explain in detail what you can expect
from physiotherapy after your operation and give you some practical tips.
We will answer any questions or concerns you have about your rehabilitation.
