Yoga & Hip Replacements

   While some may believe hip replacement surgery is debilitating and greatly affects mobility, a few months of physical therapy and a doctor’s approval can have most patients practicing yoga again. According to the Yoga-Teacher-Training.org, yoga is not only possible for hip replacement patients, but it may help to speed up recovery, strengthen the joint and help a patient regain freedom of movement.

Basic Guidelines

The “oga Journal recommends several guiding principles for practicing yoga after hip replacement surgery. Always ask your doctor or physical therapist for recommendations and clearances. She may be able to give you a list of movements you should avoid as well as movements that are helpful to strengthening your hip.
