Hip Precautions

Some patients may have joint precautions after their surgery. Your therapist will review these at each treatment session and guide you in practicing the precautions during daily activities. General hip precautions include: 

  • Do not cross your legs or feet 
  • Do not lift your knee higher than your hip on the operated side 
  • Do not turn your toes inward or outward
