Training may relieve symptoms in patients with mild to severe hip osteoarthritis and in patients who have received a total hip arthroplasty. Patients may train like healthy individuals. The effectiveness of training is dependent on sufficient dose and intensity. In this review, we suggest to prioritise research performed in the pre-clinical or in the mild to moderate stage of hip osteoarthritis where there is insufficient evidence on whether training has a disease-modifying effect or not. We also suggest that trials with long-term follow-up are performed for these patient groups.
