FAQ



Someone who has had a hip replacement may be happy to find that the pain they had learned to live with is finally gone, and look forward to resuming a healthy lifestyle.  It is important to do this, but there are some limitations to keep in mind.  The first step in exercising after surgery begins in the days afterward, when patients are typically directed to do simple physical therapy exercises such as bending the knee or ankle in order to maintain range of motion.  Patients will also be likely to get instructions on a program of stretching to do after the surgery.  Years of compensating for hip pain can alter the way you walk, leading to stiffness in some muscles and causing problems for other joints such as the knee. Physical therapy can correct this.                                                                                                                               
As the weeks and months pass, patients will go back to normal activities. For patients who want to return to an active lifestyle, it’s important to know which are best for artificial hips.  Walking, bicycling, elliptical trainers, cross-country skiing and doubles tennis are all very well tolerated because they are low-impact. Swimming and other water-based exercise are especially recommended since a person in the water is essentially weightless, and thus no pressure at all is placed on the joint.  Swimming is also an excellent cardio workout.
Conversely, some exercises are not recommended because they are high-impact and place a great deal of strain on the joint. These include running and singles tennis.  While doctors will recommend that you not run, a community exists of hip replacement patients who do engage in running and strive to minimize the risks. Ultimately, any activity that places pressure on the joint shortens its lifespan, but it is up to the patient to decide if the additional risk is worth the improvement in quality of life. Always tell your doctor if you have chosen to engage in a higher-risk activity so they can help you reduce the risks.  Exercise machines such as the leg press that use weight to press against the leg are recommended against for the same reason. They use weight to force the leg into a particular position.                                                         
Another class of exercise may be dangerous because it comes with the risk of falling and dislocating the hip; this includes downhill skiing and horseback riding. Only engage in these if you are very skilled at them or are in a low-risk context, such as an easy ski slope.
People have debated whether weight training and bodybuilding are safe after a hip replacement.  Performing squats and other weighted exercises does increase wear to the hip, since the extra weight presses down on it.  However, some have argued that this is safer than the repeated high-impact stresses of running and other cardio. When planning an exercise program, patients could always base their decision on doctors’ advice about what positions are safe from the risk of dislocation, and weigh risks against benefits.
