Persistent hip pain in people over 50 years of age is most often due to underlying hip osteoarthritis (OA). There is growing evidence that exercises and education can help reduce the symptoms and impact of osteoarthritis, however this has not been specifically looked at in those with hip OA.
148 Participants were randomly allocated to one of two groups. Each group will receive five physiotherapy exercise sessions and a home exercise program, and in addition had access to two different forms of education online; either a general arthritis education package or an education package based on cognitive behavioural therapy and pain coping skills training (PCST). The objective was to see if the addition of PCST to physiotherapy exercise for people with hip OA has superior benefits for pain on walking and physical function. The primary time point is 24 weeks with follow-up at 52 weeks.
