Mobility and Activities after Hip Replacement
  • Total hip replacement surgery involves removing
    the ball and socket joint and replacing it with
    an artificial joint. It allows the patients to be
    stable while standing or walking and gives relief
    to the pain.
  • Recovery after the hip replacement is a necessary
    process, and it differs from person to person.
    The patient should take proper care to recover
    after the surgery and avoid the risks that occur
    after the surgery. Here are the various
    activities that patients can do for the
    successful recovery after the hip
    replacement surgery

Mobility and Activities after Hip Replacement
  • 1. Before getting discharged from the hospital
  • After the surgery, a patient stays for 3-5 days
    in the hospital. During this time, the patient
    needs to follow several goals to return to normal
    life activities again.
  • These goals include
  • Using the bathroom by yourself.
  • Getting on and off the bed.
  • Being able to take food and drink by yourself.
  • Being able to walk with a device like a cane.

  • 2. After getting discharged from the hospital
  • One needs to make several changes in their home
    so they do not feel uncomfortable at their own
    home after the surgery.
  • These preparations include
  • Placing your frequently used items near your bed.
  • Removing the tripping hazards from your home.
  • Get a high chair for comfortable sitting.
  • Install a raised toilet to use it comfortably.

Mobility and Activities after Hip Replacement
  • Reaching the home after getting discharged from
    the hospital, the patients need to follow certain
    things to recover faster. These things are
  • If the patients stitches are not removed, take
    necessary instructions from the doctor regarding
    the bath.
  • Clean the area around the incision regularly to
    prevent any infection and other complications.
  • Keep monitoring your fever timely and contact the
    doctor if it passes the threshold.
  • If the wound starts becoming red and causes
    irritation, consult the doctor immediately.

Mobility and Activities after Hip Replacement
  • Activities and mobility exercises after the hip
    replacement
  • The best hip replacement surgeon advises
    performing some prescribed exercise on a regular
    and controlled basis. These exercises make the
    muscles around the hip area strong and help the
    patient in doing his usual life activities.

Mobility and Activities after Hip Replacement
  • The best orthopedic surgeons in Mumbai recommend
    these exercises for the patients
  • 1.  Walking
  • Walking has many advantages. It is gentle on hip
    bones, keeps your weight balanced, and increases
    immunity.
  • 2. Tennis
  • Playing a doubles game in tennis is beneficial
    after the hip replacement surgery. It helps you
    to return to your normal day-to-day activities.
    However, the best hip replacement surgeons in
    Mumbai recommend to not overdo it.

  • 3. Swimming
  • Swimming is a gentle exercise. It provides health
    benefits to the patients without affecting the
    hip replacement of the patient.
  • It is not only advisable but necessary to follow
    all the recommended activities so that the
    patient does not suffer from any further risks
    and complications. When patients do not follow
    the prescribed instructions, they
    undergo revision hip replacement. It means going
    through the same pain and trauma again.
