A 35-year-old female asked about a 86-year-old male:
are there any post treatments recommended after a hip replacement surgery to lower the risks of dislocation?

They depend on the-: -approach used, either posterior or anterior. But 4 post, no internal rotation of the hip or crossing legs. These R basic. Ant. avoid external rotation of the hip. Each of these mimic the way the hip is dislocated @ surgery. Be sure to ask your surgeon about this, he/ she is the person to ask.
