Walking Skill Training Program Effects in Patients With Total Hip Arthroplasty
Effect of a Walking Skill Training Program in Patients Who Have Undergone Total Hip Arthroplasty: Followup One Year After Surgery

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:

  1. 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
  2. to examine whether the effects persisted 12 months after surgery
