Project Details

Osteoarthritis of the hip is a common condition in adults. It often causes joint pain and difficulty with activities and reduces quality of life. It is known that exercise can help to reduce pain and improve function, general well-being and mood in people with hip osteoarthritis while being safe on joints. Osteoarthritis of the hip is a common condition in adults. Further research is needed to better understand which type of exercise is most beneficial. This randomised controlled trial will compare the effects of two different exercise programs for people with hip osteoarthritis related pain and physical dysfunction. Participants in each group will receive nine individual physiotherapist consultations and a home exercise program.
