Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to determine which group exercise one should choose when hip osteoarthritis patients have undergone hip replacement surgery. To determine this, we want to answer the following research question:

Are there differences in function and muscle strength in osteoarthritis patients who conduct group training either on land or in water in the rehabilitation phase following hip replacement surgery?

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Group training on land
Group training in water and on land are carried out by the same principles, which is to improve general function, and to improve function and strength around the operated hip.
Other: Group training
Each session lasts 50 minutes and consists of warm-up, mobility training, strength training, balance training and endurance training. Mobility training is conducted to increase range of motion in the operated hip, strength exercises are conducted to strengthen muscles around the operated hip, balance training are conducted to improve stability around the operated hip and endurance training are conducted to increase patients' physical capacity. This is in line with current guidelines for the exercise of osteoarthritis patients.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Function1 [ Time Frame: Pre-operative ]
    Function is evaluated using a questionnaire, Harris Hip Score (HHS) and by using 6-minute walk test (6MWT).

  2. Function2 [ Time Frame: Post-operative ]
    Function is evaluated using a questionnaire, Harris Hip Score (HHS) and by using 6-minute walk test (6MWT).

  3. Funtion3 [ Time Frame: After 12 weeks training ]
    Function is evaluated using a questionnaire, Harris Hip Score (HHS) and by using 6-minute walk test (6MWT).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Muscle strength1 [ Time Frame: Pre-operative ]
    Muscle strength around the operated hip are evaluated by measuring isometric muscle strength in hip-abduction and knee-extension using a hand-held dynamometer (HHD) from Lafayette Instruments.

  2. Muscle strength2 [ Time Frame: Post-operative ]
    Muscle strength around the operated hip are evaluated by measuring isometric muscle strength in hip-abduction and knee-extension using a hand-held dynamometer (HHD) from Lafayette Instruments.

  3. Muscle strength3 [ Time Frame: After 12 weeks training ]
    Muscle strength around the operated hip are evaluated by measuring isometric muscle strength in hip-abduction and knee-extension using a hand-held dynamometer (HHD) from Lafayette Instruments.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Hip osteoarthritis patients who undergo surgery with total prosthesis at St. Olav's Hospital, Department Orkdal.
  • Participants must live in commuting distance from the hospital, as the training is organized as outpatient training
