ABSTRACT: JOINT REPLACEMENT (ARTHROPLASTY) IS THE MAINSTAY OF SURGICAL INTERVENTIONS FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH PAIN AND IMPAIRMENTS OF THE HIP THAT HAVE BEEN RECALCITRANT TO CONSERVATIVE INTERVENTIONS. MANAGEMENT OF CLIENTS WHO HAVE HAD A HIP ARTHROPLASTY (HA) CAN BE CHALLENGING FOR THE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROFESSIONAL GIVEN THE POTENTIAL FOR LATE COMPLICATIONS AND RESIDUAL IMPAIRMENTS. ALTHOUGH COMMON OVERARCHING PRINCIPLES EXIST THAT MAY IMPROVE THE CLIENT’S FITNESS LEVEL, A REQUISITE UNDERSTANDING OF SURGICAL APPROACHES, PRECAUTIONS, REHABILITATION PRINCIPLES, AND RESIDUAL IMPAIRMENTS ARE NECESSARY TO DESIGN SAFE AND EFFECTIVE POSTREHABILITATION EXERCISE PROGRAMS.
