Rehabilitation following total hip arthroplasty evaluation over short follow-up time: Randomized clinical trial

Carolina Sant’anna Umpierres, MSc, et al.

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.
