ABSTRACT
Introduction: Early rehabilitation of patients with cementless total hip arthroplasty (cTHA) includes different physical modalities and pulsed low frequency magnetic field (PLFMF), which effects have not been explored yet. Objective: To investigate the effects of PLFMF which was applied in different doses in early rehabilitation of patients with cTHA. Method: Prospective, controlled, clinical study included 90 patients, divided in three groups with 30 patients each. First two groups were treated with high (group A) or low (group B) doses of PLFMF, in addition to kinesitherapy. Control group C was treated only with kinesitherapy. Study was completed in three weeks. Results: Subjects of group A had significantly lower pain than group B (p
