The purpose

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent disease associated with significant morbidity and is one of the most common causes of joint pain. Characterized by their chronicity, slow and progressive evolution. The overall prevalence of symptomatic knee osteoarthritis is estimated at 3.8%, with peak prevalence in the population with an average age of 50 years. The main objectives of interventions in patients with knee OA are reduced pain and improved functional capacity and exercises are widely recommended. The literature shows a lack of clinical trials verifying the effect of strengthening the hip muscles in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Thus, the aim of this study is to assess the effect of strengthening the hip abductor muscles versus hip adductor muscles in patients with symptomatic OA of the knee.
