Will I need physiotherapy after hip osteotomy?
Anyone having a hip osteotomy will be given a tailor-made physiotherapy program. It is most important you follow this guidance. These exercises and instructions help ensure the lasting effect of your procedure and future health of your hip.
Your physiotherapy will begin when you are in hospital then you will be given follow up appointments to attend as well as work to do when you are home.
As your recovery progresses, you will require fewer physiotherapy and aftercare appointments. Many patients begin tapering off physiotherapy after about 2 or 3 months.
