We recommend performing a rehabilitation measure after your inpatient stay. Rehabilitation usually lasts 3 weeks and can also be performed on an outpatient basis. The rehab can take place in Mallorca (Rehab in Mallorca), or in other European countries. After 7-14 days you will be mobile and able to fly independently.
The goals of rehabilitation are:
· Improve mobility
· Relief of any pain
· Support and stabilization of the hip
· Strengthening the muscles
· Stabilization of mental well-being
· Reintegration into everyday life, work and leisure activities
By the end of rehabilitation at the latest, you will be able to walk without crutches. However, many patients are able to walk shorter distances much earlier (after 1 week) without walking aids. For longer walking distances, especially with cement-free anchoring, walking with crutches should be kept up to 6 weeks after surgery, not to disturb osteo- integration of the new hip.
