In recent years, there has been an increase in the practice of hip replacement surgery. The good results obtained in this type of surgical practice have led to a greater emphasis on establishing the importance of the physiotherapeutic approach. Therefore, the authors propose an action protocol aimed at patients in the pre- and post-operative period of total hip arthroplasty. With the aim of establishing a guide for rehabilitation treatment during the hospital phase. All this, in order to prevent dislocation and avoid complications. The worldwide prevalence of these fractures increases with the age of the population, but their incidence increases more than could be expected due to the increase in the number of elderly people. It is concluded that the application of the rehabilitation protocol provides a multidisciplinary, specialized and safe medical assistance for patients in the pre and post-operative period of total hip arthroplasty and contributes to the improvement of the prognosis and quality of life of these patients.
