Rehabilitation plays an important part after total hip arthroplasty. In this common practice few studies have been performed on this issue.
The aims of this study were:
- to examine the immediate effects of a walking skill training program on walking, stair climbing, balance, self-reported physical functioning physical functioning, pain and self-efficacy compared to a control group without supervised physiotherapy
- to examine whether the effects persisted 12 months after surgery

Experimental: Walking skill training group
Participation in the supervised walking skill training program.

No Intervention: Control group
No participation in the supervised walking skill training program
- 6 Minutes Walk Test (6MWT) [ Time Frame: 5 months and 12 months ]Participants walked in a 40 meter hospital corridor for 6 minutes.
- Hip Dysfunction and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (HOOS) [ Time Frame: 5 months and 12 months ]Self-reported symptoms, pain, physical function, function in sport and recreation, quality of life. 0 (worse) - 100 (best)
- Harris Hip Score (HHS) [ Time Frame: 5 months and 12 months ]Pain and physical function. 0 (worse) - 100 (best)
- Self-efficacy [ Time Frame: 5 months and 12 months ]Self-reported self-efficacy in activities. 0 (worse) - 100 (best).
- Stair Climbing Test (ST) [ Time Frame: 5 months and 12 months ]Ascend and descend 8 steps with a step hight of 16 cm as fast as they could without running. Few seconds (best) - many seconds (worse)
- ROM Extension [ Time Frame: 5 months and 12 months ]Active range of motion (ROM) in hip extension test. Degrees is registered. 0 degrees indicates zero position of the hip, minus digrees indicates flexion contracture.
- Index of Muscle Function (IMF) [ Time Frame: 5 months and 12 months ]Tests of general mobility, muscle strength, balance/coordination, and endurance. 40 (worse) - 0 (best)
- Figure-of-eight Test [ Time Frame: 5 months and 12 months ]Test of dynamic balance. Number of steps on and outside the line is registered. 0 (best)
