Pilates and Hip Replacement

In an ideal environment a basic Pilates program should be started two to three months before the operation. When this is possible it makes the post operative period easier for the client and helps to reduce the recovery time. The post operative Pilates program can start either at the same time as the physiotherapists program or when the client has been signed off from this program. This very much depends on the physiotherapist and the client. I prefer to start when the physiotherapist signs off the client.
I think it is important to remain in contact with the physiotherapist during the initial stages of the Pilates program. Pre-operation, Post-operation, nine week stage, twelve week stage and progress to a normal exercise program taking into consideration the protocols set out by the original surgeon. In our case pilates will be the main form of exercise. We should recommend extra activities that will include balance and sensible aerobic activity.

We need to help:
-increase fitness and endurance
-reduce risk of falling
-increase muscle strength
-improve bone quality and strength
-maintain a healthy weight
-reduce risk of other health conditions



activities not recommended after total hip replacement:
jogging. basketball. football. soccer. baseball. squash. hockey. high impact aerobics. martial arts.

Finally, the pilates based program is ideal for the total hip replacement client but the approach has got to be creative.

During the workshop we explore ways to be creative.

Let´s have fun with the „34“ Classical Mat Exercises

Some schools of thought feel that the mat work routine must be performed in the same sequence that Joseph Pilates laid down in his book ”Return To Life Through Contrology".
Like so many things in life, a routine that is continuously repeated in the same way over and over again begins to loose its focus and appeal and meaning.
Over the many years of teaching I have realised that many of the exercises are unsuitable for the level of experience and for the physicality of many of my clients and students. Initially I teach the less demanding exercises, modified or abandoned others until the client or student is ready both physically and mentally ready to perform them safely.
For the proficient and long term clients and students who have mastered the thirty four exercises, changing the routine,linking different exercises together, making up sequences and working with a partner adds a new dimension to the work. Also, importantly, it creates and element of fun and enjoyment.
While changing the exercises and making up sequences and having fun, it is very important not to lose sight of the original exercise.
The Pilates principles,what ever changes are made to the exercises and to the sequence of exercises, are to be adhered to.
