Hip Replacement Following Hip Fracture, Physiotherapy Singapore
replacement surgery is where the hip joint is replaced by an implant, either
total replacement or hemi (half) replacement surgeries. Such operations are
usually to relieve pain due to arthritis or to correct severe bone/joint damage
as part of hip fracture treatment protocols. Our patients who undergo hip
replacement surgery are usually following a fall, and landing on the buttocks,
causing a bone fracture of the hip.
The Indications For This Option?
usually used to treat damage such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis,
avascular necrosis, hip fractures, bone tumors, ankylosing spondylitis and
juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The surgical goal is pain relief and improve hip
mobility and function. Often, we provide physiotherapy and occupational therapy
consultations to patients prior to surgery, to ascertain and understand their
mobility and functional level premorbidly, and to teach them exercises to
strengthen them before surgery (this boost healing and discharge success rate).
Employed By Surgeons
a few techniques for hip replacement surgeries, and their main differences are
the approach. They are: posterior (Moore), lateral (Hardinge or Liverpool),
antero-lateral (Watson-Jones), anterior (Smith-Petersen) and greater
trochanter osteotomy. If you’re wondering which is best, don’t. Leave that to
the doctors; they are the specialists – they will evaluate the damage of the
joint and bones, your lifestyle, their implant options and your financing
options, and prescribe you what best suits you.
there is one approach that you can take note of, which is the Minimally
invasive approach; which seeks to limit and reduce the amount of soft
tissue damage to minimizing the size of the cuts and incisions. But, this may
limit positioning, which in turn limits visualization and accuracy, which is
not a very good trade-off, for mobility and functional results. As more
research and development looks at this approach, more and more technology will
be developed to aid and perhaps this approach will be a more viable approach
Complications Of Hip Replacements
common risks and complications are: dislocation, loosening, impingement,
infection, osteolysis, metal sensitivity, palsy, pain and death.
For Patients With Hip Fractures
corrective surgery for hip fracture, patient almost always have resultant pain,
decreased mobility, weakness and difficulty walking and moving around.
Physiotherapy provides chest physiotherapy exercises, to ensure that the lungs
and chest functions remains strong, to prevent any onset of chest infections
which facilitates healing; and gradually, to improve the mobility of the
patient by first teaching and doing with the patient bed exercises, to
exercises out of bed, and gradually to walking with aids (if required) then to
walking independently. In between, we will work with pain relief, range of
motion exercises and strengthening exercises.
Occupational therapy implication, on the other hand, looks at
functional, day to day tasks – they will ensure that when the patient
discharges to go home, they will be able to perform activities such as wearing
their own clothings (pants and underpants); that their homes will be safe and
accessible (we might have to send our occupational therapy staff to do a home
visit and recommend any changes required for a safe discharge); train
caregivers to be competent in walking and doing activities with the patient.
