Aging impairs the central nervous system capability to process vestibular, visual and proprioceptive signals responsible for maintaining body balance. Total hip replacement (THR) is a procedure, which can improve the quality of life in osteoarthritic patients. However, dynamic stability deficits and impairment in lower limb can be observed for several months after the procedure. Purposes: to investigate the effect of dynamic balance training and traditional rehabilitation on hip musculature moments, and stability index in unilateral total hip arthroplasty programming.
