Post-Operative Physical Therapy Exercise Following Hip Arthroscopy: Week 1

This video highlights the week one exercises our patients are to perform following a hip arthroscopy surgery with Dr. Byrd. Any instructions given to patients following their surgery to modify these or make adjustments should be followed and no exercises should create pain.

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of these exercises, individual results may vary. There are no guarantees of outcome.  Before you decide on an exercise, please discuss treatment options with your physical therapist. Understanding the risks of each treatment / exercise can help you make the best decision for your individual situation.  Always ask your physical therapist about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits. Only your physical therapist can determine the appropriate treatment for your situation.

Physical Therapy Exercise: Bear Pose/Crawling

This is a great foundational exercise that requires significant control over the core/trunk. Bear pose alone can be enough for some people, however challenges can be incorporated as the exercise becomes easier to perform with taps and crawling movements.

Physical Therapy Exercise: Rolling

This is a great corrective exercise for motor control and core activation. The goal of the exercise is to sequence the movement of the trunk segmentally using a reflexive pattern learned in development around 4-6 months old. This is a foundational exercise we use at Nashville Hip as a building block for other progressions.
