NCP Technique and ROM

NCP (Neck Capsule Preservation) Techique and ROM (Range of Motion)

Some doctors are telling patients that preserving the neck capsule will cause the hip to have less ROM.  Can you tell me if this is true?

Dr. Bose:

"This is not true. The capsule is sutured at the right tension and full ROM tested after capsular closure. In case there is a tight capsule (which is extremely rare) the capsule would not be sutured. Some surgeons like me believe that the capsule has proprioceptive nerve fibres (the ability to sense the position, orientation and movement) . This greatly aids in accelerating rehab and they tend to do better because patients are more confident of movement during early recovery. The fact that it is a factor to avoid dislocation/ subluxation also helps in getting more movement.
