In brief: Number of issues

Rehabilitation after a hip fracture usually involves strengthening of primary and accessory muscles that may have been affected by the surgery, such as hip flexors and extensors, as well as working on gait and safety issues.
One of the key issues is also to work on universal precautions after a hip replacement to avoid dislocation of the hardware. The precautions will depend on surgical approach.
