All rehabilitation exercises are only to be performed until you feel a stretch up to a mild discomfort. Under no circumstances should you cause yourself any pain. If you feel any pain, please take a short break and resume exercising at a reduced strain level. Overexertion will slow down the recovery process!

Femoral neck fractures are a serious and dangerous type of injury. They can occur both in the elderly and in young people. They most typically affect people over 50, particularly women in menopause, due to osteoporotic changes in the bone. It is often the result of a fall injury. In younger people, the fracture tends to be caused by high energy trauma, e.g. a car accident or a sports injury.
Additional factors include prolonged use of corticosteroids, osteoporosis, and different types of bone tumors, including metastatic ones.
A characteristic pain and deformity of the hip joint can be observed, leading to an inability to move it. The diagnosis is confirmed via radiography.
Usually surgical intervention is necessary to reconstruct the joint. Different orthopedic and osteosynthetic means are used, such as nails, screws, and plates. Sometimes the joint needs to be totally replaced with an artificial endoprosthesis.
The goal of the rehabilitation is to improve the tone of the joint’s stabilizer muscles, which significantly shortens the recovery period.
Recovery takes around 2 months.
Massages can be beneficial.
