Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth's Ask a Doctor forum.
Generally after a hip replacement surgery you will be able to do all activities that you did earlier including running, jogging, swimming etc. You can also use a normal exercise machine like a treadmill and walk at a pace that suits you.
However a vibrating machine should ideally not be used as it can cause jarring of the joint. In case you feel the need to use this, please discuss with the specialist surgeon before you go for hip replacement. Hope this helps. Take care!
