Hip and Knee Injuries and Joint Replacements

Once you’re strong enough, your PT may suggest strengthening gluts with hip extensions. Stand behind a sturdy chair. Hold the back for balance; bend your trunk forward 45 degrees. Slowly raise your right leg as high as possible without bending your knee. Pause. Slowly lower the leg. Aim for eight to 12 repetitions. Repeat with your left leg. Rest and repeat the sets.
