Hip osteoarthritis and mobilisation with movement

Immediate effects of MWM's in patients with OA of the hip

Mobilisation with movement (MWM) are a common treatment method used to improve joint range of motion and decrease pain. Little research, however, has been conducted on patients with symptomatic osteoarthritis of the hip. The primary purpose of this study was to determine the immediate effects of a lateral glide MWM on the hip joint. The authors found that a single session of MWM's had a significant effect on reducing pain and improving function.

This study provides evidence that a lateral glide MWM can result in short term pain relief and improved function in patients with hip OA. Future research should involve long term follow up with multiple treatment sessions.
