Total hip arthroplasty (THA) represents one of the most important options for many orthopaedic pathologic contexts. Patient recovery following THA is complex and involves a detailed, clinical-functional, preoperative evaluation of the hip joint biomechanics in order to quantify the functional deficit and to select the most effective rehabilitation procedures. The present study included 17 patients that addressed the Clinic of Orthopaedics and Traumatology in the Recovery Hospital of Iasi and Arcadia Hospital Iasi, to be treated by total hip arthroplasty. This study was rolled out between  September 2009 - April 2012 and included 11 male and 6 female patients, with a mean age of 64.7years. It evaluates the functional evolution in patients with total hip arthroplasty as well as the biomechanical changes of the walking during the two stages of the treatment, in order to determine the degree of functional rehabilitation in such patients. The study concludes that early start of recovery treatment lead to improvement in hip joint biomechanics and in walking activities, reducing the degree of wear on prosthesis, on contralateral healthy hip and other joints in the lower limbs
Key words:

hip joint, rehabilitation, functional evaluation
