Doing pre-hab exercises before hip surgery

Written by

I did three months of physiotherapy before I had any hip surgery.

I was assessed and given specific exercises to help correct my muscle patterning, although it didn’t change my pain, it massively improved my strength which helped with my recovery.

I also found my post-op physio much easier because the exercises were familiar and I started off stronger. 

As a physiotherapist I would also recommend taking part in strength building to aid your recovery and after experiencing it myself, I can really feel the benefit.

If you try physiotherapy first, but you have no change in symptoms, it hasn’t been a waste, it means you’ll be stronger and better prepared for surgery.
