A 38-year-old female asked:
I am currently recovering from a hip labrum repair/anchor. I have been nwb for almost 6 weeks. Is this a common timeframe for no physical therapy?

Hip Surgery: This is a specific question to address with your surgeon. The hip is a weight bearing joint and your surgeon is trying to protect the repair. The soft tissue (labrum) has to heal into the bone. Healing is dependent on the blood supply. As for pt did the surgeon give you some range of motion exercises to do at home? Sometimes we surgeons are cautious because we therapists may be too aggressive.
