Exercise is often recommended as part of the conservative management of hip osteoarthritis (OA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA) in older adults. The purpose of this review is to summarize recent evidence on power training in these populations. Clinical practice guidelines, systematic reviews, and randomized clinical trials on hip OA and THA in older adults frequently recommend exercise; however, the optimal exercise type, duration, frequency, and intensity remain unknown. There is a lack of studies that specifically examined the effects of power training on these populations. Additional research on the effects of power training on patients with hip OA and THA is therefore warranted.
