Hip Replacements

Description

Hip replacement is the most common orthopaedic operation nowadays, and with an aging population this trend is certain to continue. As movement educators we can play an integral role in both the prehab and rehab phases of the hip replacement process. Open to teachers of all levels, this workshop clarifies what a hip replacement is, when it is recommended, and the issues associated with hip replacement surgery. We also look at a variety of highly recommended exercises and movement techniques for people in the prehab and rehab stages of hip replacement.
