In brief: See below
I have worked with many pts in my career. The are in general terrific people who are dedicated to help their patients regain their mobility.
For a hip fracture you will begin by learning how to stand again, regain your balance, walk then strengthen your hip. People usually progress from a walker to a cane and then hopefully no assistive device.
