hip osteoarthritis, pain, physical activity


Hip joint degenerative pathology appears in young age groups, related to femoroacetabular impingement, and in advanced age, due to other inflammatory causes, with greater potential for severity in the presence of comorbidities. Within a sample group of 54 patients with surgical indication, treated at a university orthopedic referral hospital, our objective is to carry out a descriptive analysis of anthropometric variables, level of pain in, with early hip osteoarthritis and to identify any active active group the distribution of domains of physical activity practice, according to the IPAQ. The prevalent age group below 60 years (79.6%), most (44.4%) of those included in the study had femoroacetabular impact, among the 77.8% were active and 22.2% inactive. There was no statistically significant difference between groups in BMI (p = 0.838) and VAS (p = 0.259). For the BMI variable there was a medium effect (η2p = 0.072) and for a high VAS effect (η2p = 0.277). 55.6% were male and 44.4% female. In conclusion, age under 60 years and the increase in BMI and its highest incidence was present in the clinical diagnosis of osteoarthritis. Therefore, in individuals with this advanced joint disease, prevention activities and the practice of physical activities should be encouraged.
