Prehabilitation on for hip surgery patients

As a chartered physiotherapist, I have a specific interest in hip patients and prehabilitation generally. Prehabilitation means analysing an individual’s posture, movement patterns, muscle control, biomechanics, core stability and functional capability before surgery and designing an appropriate programme of exercises with an aim to improve recovery in the rehabilitation process.

Over the last 20 years, there have been steady advances in the field of hip preservation surgery. Patients undergoing this type of operation can be of any age; however, subjects over the age of 50 have a higher risk of an unsuccessful outcome1.
