The hip is an important joint for everyday movement due to its use in walking, running and climbing stairs. Injuries can be caused such as fractures by sudden impact or by damage to the actual joint either from unusual movement or degenerative conditions such as Osteoarthritis. These injuries can require surgery which involves cutting through several leg muscles which will need to be rehabilitated.
At Physio.co.uk our specialised physiotherapists can rehabilitate patients following hip surgery. The common hip surgeries that Physio.co.uk treat are:
- Fractured Neck of Femur
- Fractured Shaft of Femur
- Hip Replacement
- Hip Revision

Your physiotherapist at Physio.co.uk will assess you and develop an individualised rehabilitation programme for you to improve the range of movement at the hip and to strengthen the surrounding muscle so that you can return to as near normal function as possible.
