Most type of exercise is good after a hip replacement. However there should be 6-10 weeks of recover with gentle exercise prescribed from a phystio depending on the individual. Any type of hip/leg strengthening is advised. Rule of thumb is NEVER after the operation should the leg be brought across the opposite side of body. For example if the left hip as been operated on then never fully cross the left leg over to the right side of the body during exerices so no grapevines in aerobics or seated glute streatches!. Otherwise the leg/hip could pop out! Hope this helped Jane Dowling. http://www.fitnessforeverybody.co.uk
