Rehabilitating after surgery for a new hip

The surgery in which you receive a new hip is very invasive. By beginning targeted physiotherapy as soon as possible after surgery, we will ensure that you can quickly regain full use of your new hip.

    Evolution Physiotherapy:
    Specialist in hip rehabilitation

    A rehabilitation course at Evolution Physiotherapy is always a complete course. We will guide you from surgery (or even before surgery) until you can be 100% confident with your new hip.

    We have already had the opportunity to do this for hundreds of people, which has allowed us to build up a lot of knowledge and experience. We will help you with exactly what you should or should not do, so you recover optimally.

    Entire rehabilitation after a new hip can take about six months. The muscles heal fairly quickly, but the connective tissue takes a little longer to restore. During that time, our specialists are at your disposal with all their knowledge and expertise, along with all our facilities.

    We always start with a personal rehabilitation schedule, which is completely tailored to you and your situation. During the course of the rehabilitation, we adjust this schedule when necessary. This way you are always assured of the best care.

    Preparing for a new hip surgery

    Ideally, we start physiotherapy even before you have surgery. We do this because your condition before the surgery is also important. The fitter and stronger you go into surgery, the better your post-surgery recovery will be. Preparing for surgery can be done on many levels because every little bit can help.

    We will help you with a fully customized schedule to train the strength, stability and endurance of hip and surrounding muscles. We can start this at least one – but even three – months before surgery.


    By exercising three times a week, you will be optimally prepared for surgery. The training has three objectives that we discuss in detail with you during the initial consultation:

    • You know what the operation entails and how it works
    • You know how to walk with crutches
    • Your body is in optimal condition for surgery



    How do people experience our care?

    With my first new hip, I received fantastic help from Evolution Physiotherapy’s rehabilitation. My other hip is due soon, too. I do not worry about it as much this time because I know it’s going to be okay, can actually do quite a lot again and have no more pain. I don’t look forward to it, but I no longer look up to it either.

    Physiotherapy and recovery after new hip surgery

    You will start rehabilitation immediately after surgery. There, a hospital physiotherapist will help you with such things such as getting out of bed and walking on crutches. The moment you are allowed to go home, we will be there for you! In fact, we will come to you, so we can start in a low-key way.

    First of all, we focus on getting you back on your feet at home. That means (continuing) to practice walking, sitting/standing up and climbing stairs. Together, we are going to make sure that you are able to do ordinary everyday things again. Then it’s time for the next step.

    Because after a few weeks, you will have little pain and the wound will be neatly closed. Then we can focus on walking with one crutch and pay even more attention to things like walking sideways or backwards. We do these exercises together and we will provie you with exercises you can do independently. That way, you are constantly working on your recovery.

    At your earliest convenience, we can move up another notch in rehabilitation. Just until you are at least as strong and fit as you were before surgery.
