Hip Surgery Recovery
May 1, 2015
Recovering from any type of surgery takes time and patience. When the hip has had surgery, whether to repair the joint or to fully replace the joint, the recovery time is often one of the longest surgical recoveries to endure. The hip joint receives a lot of wear and tear throughout life. Any time the leg or foot moves even the slightest amount, the hip joint is activated. Whether your surgery is minimally invasive or more complex, full recovery depends on how well you rehabilitate the joint. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we provide full rehabilitation services for those who have undergone hip surgery. Recovery times vary from person to person, but one thing is certain: without proper rehabilitation, a full and effective recovery is all but impossible.
Physical therapy must continue from the time you leave the hospital until you are able to completely function independently. For most people, full hip surgery recovery takes at least six months. Yes, this sounds like a very long time; and if you are a highly active person, then these months may feel as though they drag by. However, putting the proper time and effort into full recovery will help to ensure that your results are long lasting. The therapists at Sovereign Rehabilitation are licensed and certified specialists who have the expertise to help you recover from hip surgery. We can design and implement a comprehensive therapy program that is designed around your physician’s orders and your own personal goals. Each of our therapy programs is individualized for each patient. We understand that your body is different from anyone else’s, and we use a combination of therapy approaches to best suit your needs for recovery.
If you have an upcoming hip surgery scheduled, or if you have just been released from the hospital, please call Sovereign Rehabilitation today to schedule a consultation appointment to begin treatment. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we make life feel better! Hip surgery recovery takes time, commitment, patience, and expert physical therapy care – all of which you will find at Sovereign Rehabilitation.
