Normal Hip vs Hip Osteoarthritis
Do you really need the total hip replacement right now?
Yes there is! One study showed that only 22% of hip arthritis pain patients opt for a total hip replacement after 6 years of being diagnosed with hip arthritis. So what about the other 78%? The real question is which hips with arthritis will best benefit from surgery and which hips with benefit from physical therapy? Welcome to the world of evidenced based medicine and this research has begun to identify which hips with arthritis (OA) will benefit from physical therapy and which ones should just proceed with surgery and a total hip replacement. Research does show mixed results with the benefits of physical therapy for the treatment of hip arthritis, but new research has begun so we can predict if your hip is best for surgery vs physical therapy?
