Rehabilitation following hip arthroscopy has not been well understood in the past. Although surgical procedures continue to advance, athletes are already pushing the limits to return to competition as quickly as possible. As postoperative protocols evolve, it is essential to follow the basic guidelines of rehabilitation. Initially, soft tissue healing constraints must be considered while focusing on controlling swelling and pain, restoring ROM, and preventing muscle atrophy. As physiologic healing occurs, rehabilitation must address progressive lower extremity strengthening, proprioceptive retraining, and sports specific training.
