Discover the Lasting Benefits of Physical Therapy After Total Hip Replacement Surgery

Do you have an upcoming total hip replacement surgery and want to know how to get the most out of your recovery? See how physical therapy with Roscoe PT can help get you back on your feet faster and more confidently than ever!

Recovery from total hip replacement surgery can be a long and exhausting process, often filled with obstacles and setbacks you may not have anticipated. But when you have the right support, you can speed up your recovery and see better outcomes.


Working with a physical therapy expert to rebuild strength and mobility in your hip is one of the most important parts of a successful long-term recovery. Moreover, those who neglect or decide not to take part in rehabilitation often experience a more challenging recovery process - but our team is ready to help you on your journey to healthy hips after surgery!

Recovery After Total Hip Replacement Surgery

When you can’t do what you love because of pain or limited mobility, it can really take a toll on your quality of life. Unfortunately, conditions like osteoarthritis cause serious pain and inflammation, and are generally the reason behind the need for total hip replacement surgery. 


The benefits of hip arthroplasty go beyond feeling better physically; patients who work with Roscoe Physiotherapy after their total hip replacement surgery are in less pain and can enjoy their favorite activities again, leading to improved mental well-being as well! 

From reaching exciting milestones like regaining your mobility and being able to do things that you haven’t been able to for a long time, to not quite hitting your recovery goals as planned and feeling defeated, the recovery process after a hip replacement can feel like a rollercoaster at times. Because of this, feelings like anxiety before and after your surgery are common.


Our goal at Roscoe is to make your recovery after hip replacement as consistent, enjoyable, and successful as possible. With the expertise of our team of specialists and state-of-the-art treatments, you can finally be treated like you deserve during your recovery and reach your goals faster.


Even though joint replacement surgeries are common, you’ll likely have questions and concerns along the way, and that’s completely normal. When you need answers, we can offer the support and reassurance of someone you can trust - that’s our promise!

Physical Therapy After Total Hip Replacement Surgery

At Roscoe PT, we understand that your recovery is unique, which is why we value a personalized approach to care. When you work with one of our physical therapists, you’ll get a personalized treatment plan that sets you up for success and takes into account your individual needs, preferences, and goals. You’ll have the support you need every step of the way to start living life on your terms again.

Here are some of the biggest benefits our patients see when they incorporate physical therapy into their recovery after total hip replacement surgery:

Pain Relief

Physical therapy techniques such as manual therapy and gentle movement help improve circulation and reduce swelling around your surgical site, which boosts the healing process and reduces pain and inflammation. 

Regain Strength
Pain and tension in your hip joint are relieved as you regain strength and stability in the surrounding muscles through personalized exercises. This reduces stress on your hip joint and allows it to move more freely.

Better Flexibility

Your hip joint may become stiff and inflexible after surgery. With the guidance of your physical therapist, you’ll perform exercises that improve the range of motion in your hip and alleviate the pain caused by stiffness.

Training For Daily Movements
Getting back to doing everyday movements after a total hip replacement surgery won’t happen right away, so we help you safely and confidently perform functional activities like bending, squatting, and lifting again.


Preventing Movement Compensations
When we’re uncomfortable or experiencing weaknesses, our bodies naturally want to find ways to move that reduce the pain. Unfortunately, this puts stress on other parts of your body. Working with a physical therapist ensures you aren’t developing bad habits to compensate for the pain.


Getting Back To Work
If you plan on returning to work at full capacity after your total hip replacement, working with a physical therapist is key to building a recovery plan that considers the ways you’ll need to move for your job - even if your job is taking care of the family!

The benefits of working with a physical therapist for post surgical total hip replacement are abundant. With the help of Roscoe PT and a commitment to your recovery, you can experience the lasting benefits of expert physical therapy treatment for years to come.
