ABSTRACT
Having in mind the high frequency of this type of intervention, the essential role of physical therapy in biomechanical assessment and functional rehabilitation of the hip with arthroplasty, is also rising. Scope. This study aims to analyse the muscular evolution of patient with total hip arthroplasty, during the two phases of the treatment, in this way establishing the degree of patient functional rehabilitation. Methods. Study was made on a group of 17 patients with coxarthrosis having an indication for total hip atrhtoplasty. These interventions were made during 19 of Septembre 2009 – 30 of August 2011, in the Orthopedic Department of The Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital from Iași and Arcadia Hospital. For this objective, a comparative assessment has made, between manual muscular testing and muscular testing with Myotest Pro. Results. The middle and final assessment showed a tendence of improvement in muscular strengths, especially in persons who received regular physical therapy, versus patients who had just home care program, with no specialized intervention. Conclusions. Manual muscular testing represents an objective test în muscular strength assessment of the patient with endoprosthesis and not only, being confirmed by testing with Myotest.
