The primary goal after placing an artificial hip joint is to regain independent mobilization. On the first day after the surgery, you will have appointments with our physiotherapists who specialize in the hip.
Since you have to observe some movement restrictions with a hip joint prosthesis for the following six weeks after the surgery, you will first be explained what exactly you are allowed to do and which movements you should better avoid. The first mobilization to the edge of the bed already takes place after the circulation is stimulated and, if you feel well, a few steps on the walker through the room. If the treating physician has prescribed partial weight-bearing, this will, of course, be explained by the therapist beforehand and practiced together in a standing position.
