In patients with osteoarthritis disease, total hip
arthroplasty surgery is a delicate procedure and, at
the same time, an important event in the patient’s
life. It has a relevant mission: to bring pain relief
and allow the patient to resume his or her daily life.
These improvements do not occur without the assistance
of a physiotherapist or suitable exercises. This
randomized study demonstrates the importance of
physiotherapy and shows how an applied rehabilitation
protocol promotes improved functional capacity
and quality of life over a short follow-up period.
