Rehabilitation following a hip replacement operation
Sue Richards had a new hip 10 weeks ago and also suffers with lower back pain as a result of her previous mobility problems.
She has completed the limited physiotherapy and hydrotherapy that was available to her post-op and has started at H2O Physio to continue her rehabilitation.
- Duration: 30 minutes
- Water Temperature: 31˚C
- Speed: 3.0kph
- Depth: 1100mm
- Resistance Jets: Not activated
- Direction: Forwards and backwards
- Number of Sessions: 1
Support and a comfortable level of buoyancy were achieved by setting the water-level above Sue’s hips.
The low starting speed assisted her steps towards rehabilitation and allowed the physiotherapist to monitor her movements precisely.
With a constant temperature of 31ºC, Sue’s pain was greatly reduced, which helped to increase her range of motion and stride length and maximise the training session.
The sessions also benefitted Sue psychologically as it boosted her overall confidence and helped her feel well on the way to recovery.
