Hip dysplasia and femoroacetabular impingement are frequent causes of hip pain and can often be treated with joint preserving surgery to prevent secondary osteoarthritis (OA). Patient education, progressive resistance training and weight loss at a BMI > 27 kg/m(2) has documented effect on pain and function in primary hip OA. If wound infection occurs after total hip arthroplasty the patient should not be treated with peroral antibiotics but instead be referred to an orthopaedic surgeon. There is no documentation that post-operative movement restrictions prevent dislocation of hip after total hip arthroplasty...

Background: Early multidisciplinary rehabilitation can improve the recovery after total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, optimal exercise therapy has not been defined. We aimed to answer the question: "Which type and/or timing of exercise therapy is effective following THA?". Design: Systematic review. Methods: We searched four databases: MEDLINE, PEDro, Cochrane Library, and Cinahl since January 2008 till December 2012. Literature before 2008 was not searched for, because it was previously analyzed by two systematic reviews...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There is no routinely prescribed protocol to address quadriceps weakness and functional impairments following a total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The purpose of this case report is to introduce and describe the early use of a daily adjustable progressive resistance exercise (DAPRE) protocol as an adjunct to standard rehabilitation to maximize quadriceps muscle strength and functional performance in an elderly homebound patient following a TKA. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 61-year-old female was referred to home care physical therapy for 6 weeks following left TKA due to functional deficits and inability to activate the weak left quadriceps muscle...

BACKGROUND: There is evidence of prolonged poor function in patients following total hip replacement (THR). Studies of progressive resistance training (PRT) interventions to improve function are often compared to 'standard' practice which is not well defined. This study aimed to investigate 'standard' rehabilitation care in the UK after total hip replacement (THR) as well as determine whether PRT was part of 'standard' care. METHODS: After ethical approval, questionnaire item development about rehabilitation practice was guided by a focus group interview (after informed consent) with physiotherapists (n = 4; >5 years post-qualification) who regularly treated THR patients...

The long-term outcomes following primary TJA for OA are favorable. However, surgery alone fails to fully restore physical function and address longstanding impairments associated with chronic joint disease. Older adults undergoing TJA can gain similar benefits as those who are younger; however, the elderly are at increased risk for adverse events. Frailty, more so than age, is related to suboptimal outcomes. To what extent appropriate and sufficient rehabilitation can further improve health outcomes including activity and participation and positively impact prosthesis survival and need for revision is still unclear...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Previous studies on rehabilitation following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) demonstrated limited efficacy in increasing long-term outcomes. More recently, several rehabilitation approaches have demonstrated greater efficacy for increasing long-term strength and functional performance outcomes following TKA. RECENT FINDINGS: Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), applied to the surgical limb's quadriceps muscle for the first 6 weeks following surgery, has been shown to improve the speed of recovery from TKA and leads to long-term increases in strength and functional performance...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze muscle strength and exercise intensity adaptation to resistance training in older women with knee osteoarthritis and total knee arthroplasty. METHODS: Twenty-three community-dwelling women were divided into the following groups: older, with knee osteoarthritis and total knee arthroplasty in the contralateral limb (OKG; N= 7); older, without symptomatic osteoarthritis (OG; N= 8); and young and healthy (YG; N= 8). Muscle strength (1-repetition maximum strength test) and exercise intensity progression (workload increases of 5%-10% were made whenever adaptation occurred) were compared before and after 13 weeks of a twice-weekly progressive resistance-training program...

This study investigated the use of whole-body vibration (WBV) as an alternative strengthening regimen in the rehabilitation of individuals with total knee arthroplasty (TKA) compared with traditional progressive resistance exercise (TPRE). Individuals post TKA (WBV n = 8; TPRE n = 8) received physical therapy with WBV or with TPRE for 4 weeks. Primary dependent variables were knee extensor strength, quadriceps muscle activation, mobility, pain, and range of motion (ROM). There was a significant increase in knee extensor strength and improvements in mobility, as measured by maximal volitional isometric contraction and the Timed Up and Go Test (TUG), respectively, for both groups (p < 0...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effectiveness of progressive quadriceps strengthening with or without neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) on quadriceps strength, activation, and functional recovery after total knee arthroplasty (TKA), and to compare progressive strengthening with conventional rehabilitation. METHODS: A randomized controlled trial was conducted between July 2000 and November 2005 in an academic outpatient physical therapy clinic. Two hundred patients who had undergone primary, unilateral TKA for knee osteoarthritis were randomized to 1 of 2 interventions 4 weeks after surgery, and 41 patients eligible for enrollment who did not participate in the intervention were tested 12 months after surgery (standard of care group)...

The course of development of total hip replacement (THR) is neither harmonious nor linear. Progress and set-backs alternate. Progress in THR manifests itself through reductions in the number and the severity of complications (infection, aseptic loosening, prematurely worn components, etc.). Innovation is the motor of progress. However, today's innovation may well be tomorrow's revision! Progress has been achieved in part through new implant materials and designs that provide improvements in such things as stress distribution in surrounding bone, tissue compatibility and osseointegration, and resistance to both wear and cyclic fatigue...
