Exercises After Hip Surgery: Ankle Pump, Quad Sets, Gluteal Sets

The following exercises can be done in bed. Some help improve blood flow. Others help build strength. Your PT may give you special instructions. Otherwise, repeat each exercise 10 times. Do them at least twice each day.

Ankle Pumps

  • Point, then flex, both feet.

  • Doing this 10-30 times each hour helps prevent blood clots in your legs.

Quadriceps Sets

  • Lie in bed with your legs straight. Tighten the front thigh muscle of your operated leg while pressing the back of your knee down into the bed.

  • Hold for 5 seconds, then relax the leg.

Gluteal Sets

  • Squeeze your buttocks together tightly. Your hips will rise slightly off the bed.

  • Hold for 5 seconds, then release.
