Exercise After Hip Replacement

To achieve full recovery after a hip replacement it is vital that you incorporate regular exercise into your life. Regular post-operative exercise will allow you to return to your everyday activities within 3-6 weeks after surgery; and return to driving at six weeks. These exercises are geared to restoring your blood flow, strength and mobility. Moving forward it is important to gradually increase walking, sitting, standing, and climbing stairs.

Your orthopedic surgeon will work with your physical therapist to create a plan for you.

During early recovery, while you are in the hospital, you will begin to walk short distances in your room to help your hip to regain its strength and movement.

Post- operative exercise


Walking is the best exercise for a healthy recovery, because walking will help you recover hip movement. Initially, the use of a walker or crutches will help to prevent blood clots and strengthen your muscles which will improve hip movement. To ensure you are walking properly you will receive guidance from your surgeon or therapist about how much weight to put on the leg. You will be able to more weight on your operated leg as your strength and endurance improve.

While exercise may be painful at first, it can reduce post-op pain, improve blood flow and speed recovery. This will also reduce swelling in the calf and ankle. Swelling can last up to 3 months.

We recommend that you walk two to three times a day for about 20-30 minutes each time. You should get up and walk around the house every 1-2 hours.  Eventually you will be able to walk and stand for more than 10 minutes without putting weight on your walker or crutches. Then you can graduate to a cane.

Climbing Stairs

Stair climbing is a great way to increase your strength and endurance. Always use your hand rail and do not try to climb any steps that are higher than 7″. Using a crutch on the opposite side from your surgery, climb up leading with your good leg. Putting weight on the crutch, raise your operated leg and place it on the step. Moving slowly one step at a time.

Going down lead with your operated leg, putting your weight on the crutch. Eventually, you will become stronger enabling you to climb the stairs foot over foot.

Early Post-op exercises

Lying Down:

  1. Ankle Pumps- This exercise should be done right after surgery, and until you are completely recovered. Point and flex your ankles often, at least once per hour.
  2. Ankle Rotations- move the ankle inside and outside away from the other foot. Do these 5 times in each direction, 3 to 4 times per day.
  3. Knee Bends – lying on the bed with your leg straight out in front of you, pull your foot toward your buttocks keeping your heel on the bed. Hold in this position for 5-10 seconds, then straighten the knee keeping your heel on the bed.
  4. Buttock Tightening- Lying on your back, contract your buttocks muscles and hold for a count of 5. Release and repeat 10 times a day.
  5. Abduction exercises- slide your leg out to your side as far as you can away from your body, and then slide it back. Repeat 10 times per day.
  6. Quadriceps – Lying on your back, tighten your thigh muscles. Try to straighten your knee. Hold for 5-10 seconds. Repeat 10 reps in 10 minutes, resting one minute, then repeat. Stop when your thigh feels fatigued.
  7. Straight leg raises- tighten your quads keeping your knee straight. Lift the leg a few inches. hold 5-10 seconds. Lower the leg. Repeat until your thigh feels fatigued.

Standing Exercises

  1. Knee raises. Standing behind a chair and hold the back of the chair for support, raise the knee toward your chest only to waist height. Hold for a count of 2-3 and put the leg down.
  2. Standing hip abduction. Holding the back of a chair for support, raise your leg out to the side, hold and slowly lower to the floor. Do 10 repetitions. Repeat 3-4 times a day.
  3. Standing Hip extensions. Again, holding the back of a chair for support, Lift the leg back behind you, keeping the leg and back straight. Hold for 2-3 counts. Release and return the foot to the floor. Do 10 repetitions. Repeat 3-4 times a day.

After about a month of strengthening your hip muscles, you will receive a list of exercises using resistance with an elastic tube. You may also be instructed to ride an exercise bike. Speak with your Ortho Illinois surgeon, and or your physical therapist regarding when you will be ready for these more advanced exercises.

Childhood exposure to passive smoking and bone health in adulthood. The Cardiovascular Risk in Young Finns Study

In this longitudinal study, researchers investigated the independent effects of exposure to passive smoking in childhood on adult bone health. Participants included 1,422 people who were followed up for 28 years from baseline in 1980 (age 3-18 years). Peripheral bone characteristics were evaluated in adulthood using quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) in the tibia and radius, and calcaneal mineral density was estimated by quantitative ultrasound. Children whose parents smoked and had high levels of cotinine had a significantly lower bone sum index derived from pQCT vs smoking parents with low levels of cotinine. According to findings, children of smoking parents having a greater risk of experiencing bone health impairment in adulthood.

TKA: Local Injection Anesthesia vs Femoral Nerve Blok

Femoral nerve block or local infiltration (injection) anesthesia for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) patients—which works better?

Dr. Alessandro Paglia, faculty member with the Department of Life, Health and Environmental Sciences, University of L’Aquila, as well as the Department of Mini-invasive and Computer-assisting Orthopaedic Surgery at San Salvatore Hospital and study co-author explained to OTW the purpose behind the study: “TKA is a surgical procedure that leads to a lot of pain in the postoperative days. We are looking for a standardized protocol for pain management to apply to all patients.”

For their study, the investigators enrolled 51 patients into a three-arm, randomized prospective study. Group 1 (the control group) received no analgesic protocol. Group 2 received an intraoperative local infiltration anesthesia (LIA). Group 3 received a femoral nerve block (FNB).

Dr. Paglia and his colleagues reported that the, “local infiltration anesthesia and femoral nerve block groups both showed a significant reduction at VAS [Visual Analog Score] score, better range of motion and less morphine consumption than the control group. The local infiltration group reported a constant pain control in the postoperative days; the femoral nerve block group reported good pain control in the hours after surgery, but decreased efficacy in the following days.”

Dr. Paglia told OTW, “Our results show how the local infiltration is a good strategy. There are a lot of ways of treating pain after TKA but it is still not possible to understand what could be the best. At the moment we are studying the block of adductors compared to other strategies; it seems to have an excellent analgesic effect on the first day with the appearance of important pain after 48 hours.”

“Perhaps it would be better to always have a minimum of constant pain with which the patient has to live rather than have two days of complete well-being.”

Network of proteins influences the advancement of osteoarthritis

A network of carbohydrate binding proteins – so-called galectins – plays an important role in the degeneration of cartilage in osteoarthritis. A research group at the MedUni Vienna was able to demonstrate this correlation, in cooperation with international study partners. In osteoarthritis, certain galectins are produced by the cartilage cells themselves and accelerate the degeneration process of the cartilage matrix.

Whilst galectins do play a role in cartilage development during childhood growth, they essentially do not occur in healthy adult cartilage. Now discovered that the quantity of galectin-8 found in the cell samples was correspondingly greater with an increasing severity of cartilage degeneration. After its production, this protein is released by the cartilage cells and connects with the cell surfaces, where it causes inflammatory processes and accelerates the matrix degradation of the cartilage tissue. Other galectins, which are otherwise able to perform various functions in the cell, apparently also play an accelerating role here.
