HSS Rehabilitation has prepared this material to help guide you through your recovery after your hip replacement. If you have more specific questions, please contact your physician or physical therapist.

While performing all your activities, be sure to avoid the indicated poses until they are allowed by your surgeon.

  • Do not combine the motions of bending your hip more than 90 degrees, hip adduction (crossing your legs), and hip internal rotation (turning your leg in)
