Organized physiotherapy starting two months after uncomplicated total hip replacements for primary arthrosis did not improve the rehabilitation. Six months after surgery there were no significant differences between 14 patients with and 16 patients without physiotherapy regarding improvement of passive hip motion, or hip or knee muscle strength of the operated limb. Neither were there any differences in walking ability or activities of daily living.
