Hip replacement surgery is an opportunity for a fresh start. Until now, you’ve probably suffered unending pain and weakness that has inhibited you from doing every-day activities. Even putting on your shoes may have been nearly impossible. You probably can’t wait to get back to your favorite activities after your total hip replacement surgery. With proper care, your hip will last you for many years. It is recommended to avoid high-impact sports following total hip replacement surgery, as these activities speed up the wear and tear on your hip, and may cause your hip to loosen and become painful. Low-impact sports like yoga, stretching, walking, swimming, hiking, biking, and dancing are your best bet for a long-lasting hip. These ten exercises will help to get you back on your feet and feeling great after your surgery. Talk to your doctor to see how long after surgery you are allowed to resume normal physical activity.

1. Adduction strengthening exercise

This exercise is for the first few weeks post-surgery. It is a strengthening exercise for the legs and can be done on a mat or a bed. All you need is a ball. In a seated position on your mat, with your legs outstretched, slightly bend your knees and place a ball (the size of a basketball or soccer ball) between your knees. Squeeze your knees together, against the ball and hold for 3-5 seconds and relax. Repeat ten times.
