Balance and Gait Dysfunction After Total Hip Arthroplasty And Ageless Physiotherapy Clinic Rehab. Programs !!

 

Hip Arthroplasty

Hip osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the leading causes of disability among the elderly which always comes with chronic pain and deteriorated joint function, affecting weight bearing and balance during gait.
Osteoarthritis of the hip results in chronic pain, reduced muscle strength, and reduced ability to perform daily activities. Patients with degenerative hips have difficulty maintaining stability and are at risk of falling. Because decreased joint function and muscle strength are major risk factors causing falls, concerns regarding the risk of falling might exist among patients undergoing THA.
Researchers have reported that after screening 106 older adults with hip osteoarthritis, 45% reported at least one fall in the previous year. Another reported 39% of patients undergoing hip or knee arthroplasty experienced one or more falls during a 4-week period before study participation and concluded there is a need to implement a fall-prevention program. Furthermore, periprosthetic fracture of the femur often occurs after a fall and can lead to a high rate of postoperative complications and mortality.
Total Hip replacement surgery or Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) provides pain relief and improves physical function including gait. Gait dysfunction such as altered spatio-temporal measures and gait asymmetry both pre- and post-surgery, however, may still persist after the surgery.
In Ageless Physiotherapy Clinic, we encourage early start to your physical therapy post surgery to enable you to restore functional mobility, balance, gait dysfunctions and reduce pain and swelling.
We engage modern evidence-based examination and assessment protocols and tests to arrive at appropriate diagnosis of our clients balance and gait dysfunction. Most of these protocols and tests are ultrasound imaging results, 6 minute walk tests, Berg Balance Scale, Visual Analogue Scale, and gait assessment video equipment.
The final result of diagnosis after these battery of tests will determine the choice, duration and frequency of our highly specialized physical rehabilitation programs individually customized to the patients needs.
We encourage our patients to use our in-patient facility which will enable them to have a short or long stay and concentrate on their rehabilitation protocols before being discharged home and back to their work places.

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues

    off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

    This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this
    happen previously. Thank you
