REHABILITATION AFTER ELECTIVE TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT – A RANDOMISED CONTROLLED TRIAL

Presenter: Coulter C

This module addresses:

Question: To determine the benefit of a supervised or unsupervised

program of rehabilitation exercise on patient outcomes following total

hip replacement.

Conclusion: Rehabilitation outcomes post total hip replacement were

similar clinically and statistically whether the rehabilitation was supervised

or not. This study lacked a no-intervention control group.

Key Practice Points:

• Hip replacement patients without complications may be discharged home

to manage independently with their exercise program.

• After discharge physiotherapy can be re-directed to those with additional

rehabilitation requirements.

• Consistently research indicates that key components for effective

programs include abductor strengthening and weight bearing exercise
