Effects of exercise and manual therapy on pain in hip OA

Is exercise therapy more effective than minimal control in pain management for hip OA?

Exercise therapy, whether land-based or water based, is more effective than minimal control in managing pain associated with hip osteoarthritis (OA) in the short term.

Best available evidence indicates that exercise therapy (whether land-based or water-based) is more effective than minimal control in managing pain associated with hip OA in the short-term. Larger high-quality RCTs are needed to establish the effectiveness of exercise and manual therapies in the medium and long-term.
