“Physical activity does not increase after hip surgery’
People who have a hip surgery undergone because they suffer from pain in activities and hope to be able to move after surgery, changing virtually nothing in their pattern of movement after the surgery.
Researchers from the UEA university for health compared the data of 1.030 patients who have a hip surgery undergone because the hip was worn out, or due to other non-acute reason.
The patients experienced all the pain with the move, giving them opportunities saw more to move as the pain was gone. The researchers looked at the increase in the time that people walked faster, ran, cycling and stair walking. They found out that this barely increased after the replacement of the hip.
“The benefits of regular exercise after a hip replacement are well known, but still move people a little. Doctors and patients would need to be more encouraging in motion to come,” said Tom Withers, principal investigator in Clinical Rehabilitation.
