Hip Replacement


Join Keith Ori, Founder and CEO of Orthopedic Rehab, Inc., for this live webcast as he reviews a case study of a Hip Labrum/Hip Replacement.

This case involves an extremely active 54 yo female who underwent a hip arthroscopy  in 2007 for long standing hip pain. Two years later, she developed progressive hip pain and disability. Despite conservative measures, she ultimately proceeded to a total hip arthroplasty in December of 2009.

She was referred to aquatic therapy 2 weeks later. She has been an advocate of aquatic therapy and especially of the underwater treadmill. She currently has returned to all of her recreational activities including 60 mile bike rides, tennis, jogging and attributes much of her success to the aquatic environment.

Ori and Kropp will walk the attendees through this patient's rehabilitation progression using the HydroWorx 750 Series pool.


Attendees will learn:

  • exercise protocols that can be used to rehabilitate hip replacement patients
  • safe and effective progressions post-surgery
  • pool features and accessories ideal for rehabilitation
