Will I need physical therapy for my recovery hip replacement?

Yes. You will typically need home physical therapy for about 1 week. Typically patients who have their hip replacement through a direct anterior approach are walking with a can by one week and will usually not need assistance by week 2. After this you are encouraged to utilize outpatient physical therapy. Your orthopaedic team will help you arrange for outpatient physical therapy shortly after your first post-op visit in our office. It helps to make the transition from home therapy to outpatient therapy if you visit the outpatient therapy facility prior to surgery and set up an appointment schedule with them. Outpatient therapy will usually start about 10 days from the surgery date. The length of time required for this type of therapy varies with each patient but typically goes for 2-4 weeks.
