Exercises Before Hip Replacement: To Help with Walker or Crutch Use

These exercises help build upper body strength. This helps when you need to use a walker or crutches after surgery. Be sure to exercise both arms. Your physical therapist (PT) or surgeon may also tell you to use weights when doing these exercises.

 Bicep Curls

  • Sit up straight in a chair. Keep your elbow close to your body and your wrist straight.

  • Bend your arm, moving your hand up to your shoulder. Then slowly lower your arm.

Triceps Curls

  • Sit, leaning forward from the waist.

  • Bend your elbow so that your forearm is parallel to the floor. Then straighten your elbow as you extend your arm behind you.

Seated Press-Ups

  • Sit in a sturdy chair with armrests.

  • With palms flat on the armrests, press down to lift your buttocks from the chair. Hold for a few seconds.

  • Bend your elbows to slowly ease back down.
