In brief: PT

Typically certain stretching exercises for your hip flexor, it band, and glutes are begun.
It's important to do these with an experienced pt and to not push past the pinch preoperatively. Abductor strengthening exercises are very important in the next phase. You should see your hip doctor prior to starting a pt protocol to ensure your diagnosis is correct.
