Total Hip Arthroplasty Improves Pain and Function but Not Physical Activity.
Jeldi AJ et al
- 30 cases ages 67 +/- 7 yrs
- Physical Activity of Total Hip Arthoplasty patients was quantified to 12 months postoperation
- “Physical activity did not change from presurgery to 12 months postsurgery despite improvement”
Comment – my brother dislocated his artificial hip just bending down so there are certain restrictions. People need to be warned about their function after surgery not being associated with more activity
