What are PT ideas for a Broken Hip fixed with a pin?
Physical Therapy IS a highly specialized profession and should be "taught not caught!" To give you ideas would be to put you at risk. It's not just that easy.
You can get PT at the hospital after surgery, a rehab center or at home... some people go straight home some go to a rehab center for a couple weeks. It will all depend on your home situation i.e. do you live alone, do you live upstairs etc.
Home health care PT is covered 100% through Medicare at this point in time. The same process of getting a physician referral is needed for this to be covered.
All physical therapy can be beneficial, but remember to keep active... walking keeps us walking and sitting, well, it keeps us sitting and our body's don't work well when they sit.
Cheers for full recovery!
