Hip replacement

The patient who comes to our center for rehabilitation after undergoing surgery for hip replacement is usually sore, fearful and afraid, so the first act of the physician will be to reassure the patient and explain exactly what the therapeutic procedure consists in, pointing out that during the early stages will have much pain.

The rehabilitation aims are: to prevent the implant dislocation, regain the range of motion as possible while maintaining a prudent attitude (avoiding internal rotation and circling hip), preventing hazards that can arise from prolonged immobility and retrieve a gradually increased functionality to achieve autonomy.

The first phase of the therapeutic program is focused on reducing pain through analgesic therapies (TENS, laser, ultrasound) and the range of motion recovery (with the aforementioned devices) through massage therapy relaxant to the buttocks, hip abductors, quadriceps and tensor specific stretching fascia lata and paying attention to algic positions and respecting the psychological and structural rigidities.

Eliminated the pain and improved joint mobility can begin the second phase of the protocol focused on muscle recovery. You will be proposed specific exercises for the reinforcement of the buttocks to assist in the proper upright posture and gait, and quadriceps muscles of the core first in isometric form and then progressively in manual against resistance, with ballast and with the use of Bobath balls.

Once you have objectively recovered the strength and the correct walk pattern without pain, it is appropriate to conclude the rehabilitation cycle with the last step on the field with the aim of recovering the motor pattern and return to move safely through proprioceptive exercises on unstable surfaces or reduced base support for neuromotor control and other, more cautious, to retrieve the sport specific gesture (running, soccer, jump).
