Physiotherapy will be undertaken quickly and progressively after the procedure: lifting, walking, learning a certain number of gestures to avoid dislocation of the prosthesis
It is essential during the 3 months following the surgical procedure to avoid certain movements that can dislocate the prosthesis: all movements of flexion, internal rotation and adduction are prohibited during this time and the physiotherapist will review all the movements of the lying, sitting, standing positions, which must be avoided.
Progressive return to normal activities
After this period of 3 months, a gradual recovery of previous activities is possible; However, weight gain, shocks, repetitive movements, prolonged standing should be avoided, and violent sports avoided.
Operated people will be regularly reviewed by their surgeon to see if the prosthesis is well supported, if it is well ....
After 10-15 years on average, it is usually necessary to replace the prosthesis with another, because despite the strength of the materials used, it wears out.
A hip prosthesis is placed during a surgical procedure either after a hip fracture or in front of osteoarthritis which gradually destroys the joint and becomes a handicap. It is an intervention that is safe, with little risk. For 3 months after the procedure, it is important to avoid any rotation, flexion or hip adduction that may dislocate the prosthesis. Physiotherapy sessions can recognize these movements and avoid them. The implementation of a hip prosthesis allows a resumption of previous activities after about 3 months, except violent sports that are to be avoided. Orthopedic surgeons pose about 150, 000 hip prostheses each year.
