Health Resort Treatment After Total Hip Replacement Surgery
Introduction: Health resort treatment is part of the rehabilitation of patients after total hip replacement surgery. Methods: The study included 23 patients who were referred for helth resort treatment. During the health treatment, They were tested on the first and last day of treatment. The tests used were a 10m walking test, a stand-up and go test, and goniometry of the hip joint. Results: The time of of performing relaxed walking and fast walking at 10m was shortened in the measurements on the last day compared to the measurements on the first day. In both cases, the difference was statistically significant (p = 0.000). Also in the test get up and go, the time on the last day was shortened by a statistically significant difference (p = 0.000). Improvement and a statistically significant difference between the first and last day (p = 0.000) were also found between the measurements of anteflexion, retroflexion, abduction, adduction, internal rotation and external rotation. There was a medium to moderate correlation between the get-up and go-and-move test: anteflexion (ro = -0.471, p = 0.023), retroflexion (ro = -0.675, p = 0.000) and adduction (ro = -0.533, p = 0.009), while the correlations between the get-up and go test and abduction, internal rotation, and external rotation movements were negligible to low (p> 0.05). Conclusion: This study confirms the importance of health rersort treatment after total hip replacement surgery. to improve the patient’s functionality, walking speed, and range of motion in the hip joint.
