+ Post Total Joint Replacement Instructions
Perform gait training as taught by physical therapists.
No hip strengthening exercises for 6 weeks.
After 6 weeks post-op, be aware of these hip precautions:
- No sitting in low seats/chairs
- No squatting to pick up objects off the floor
- No crossing legs
- No driving unless otherwise instructed
If any invasive procedure such as dental work, colonoscopy, or other surgeries are planned, please contact the office for antibiotics to be taken prior to a procedure. This will lessen the risk of post-operative joint infections.
