Following a total hip replacement surgery (THR), doctors usually recommend the patient to undergo physical therapy (PT). Raleigh Orthopaedic’s physical therapy in Cary is a program designed to aid in the patient’s full recovery and thus must not be abandoned.
Physical therapy after a THR may be in an inpatient, or outpatient scenario, as well as in the comfort of the patients’ home. The length of the rehabilitation program will depend on the doctor’s recommendations and the assessment of the therapist. However, it usually takes a patient four to six weeks to start walking unassisted and full recovery is highly possible within six months of succeeding PT sessions.
