How Active Can I Be After A Hip Replacement? Blog


icefirephysiotherapy.com.au/blog
Many people have Total Hip Replacement (THR) – also called a Total Hip Arthroplasty; in Australia alone about 19,000 of these operations are carried out each year. Some Australian orthopaedic surgeons perform as many as 150 a year. The surgery does of course require the cessation of some activities for varying periods of time after the operation. For example, driving a car is usually prohibited for 6 weeks after surgery. In contrast, research indicates that walking, involving full weight bearing, can be recommended immediately after uncemented total hip arthroplastic surgeries. Immediately in this case means the first post-operative day. This early walking was carried out under the supervision of a physiotherapist.
