Good Evening! The start of PT should not "hurt", however, there may be activities that are uncomfortable. If you feel that you cannot tolerate the pain, ask your therapist to go "a bit slower". Hip replacements are usually the easiest of the joint replacements, so I am sure you will do fine. Good luck with your rehab and always stay positive!

Thank you for such a great question! Physical therapy can help, depending on the causation of the sickness. Some physical therapists specialize in vestibular rehab, which can "retrain" the body if the cause is the inner ear. I would first suggest getting to the root what causes the sickness before embarking on formal PT. Also, there are motion sickness bracelets that are cheap and readily available online if you are interested. Many people have had great success when on a boat or long car rides. Good luck, and keep me posted!

Thank you for your question! There is not a simple solution as there are several reasons one may have back pain. The first things to consider are a patient's age, occupation, lifestyle and medical history. I would go first go to my primary doctor and ask for an orthopaedic consult for proper diagnostic testing. This is the first stop on your journey to recovery. Then, when a more specific diagnosis is made, physical therapy is a great option! Please let me know how you are doing!
