Rehabilitation Following Hip Arthroscopy: Takla-O’Donnell Protocol (TOP) for Physical Therapy
Assessment and treatment of hip pathology have been revolutionized with hip arthroscopy. In turn, surgical assessment and treatment via hip arthroscopy have therefore progressed significantly over the past decade. Physiotherapists will need to be aware of such advances as this will have significant implications on the rehabilitation process. The Takla-O’Donnell Protocol (TOP) provides a pre-/postoperative program to the patient regarding the surgical procedure and strengthening of the deep hip muscles to facilitate local muscular control followed by global retraining. The TOP will provide a process by which physiotherapist could guide, monitor, and advance patients in the rehabilitation process.
