Abstract

Adequate control of movement is essential for patients to return to unrestricted function after hip arthroscopic surgery. Mobility, muscle performance and stability, and neuromuscular control are vital aspects addressed in rehabilitation to help re-establish control of movement for function. Initial joint protection is a hallmark for all patients after hip arthroscopy to prevent intra-articular and extra-articular soft tissue irritation of healing tissues. It is essential to tailor exercises of each phase to patients' specific functional demands. Each phase of rehabilitation should be monitored so that patients are not advanced too quickly, which can lead to setbacks and delays in return to normal function.
