abstract

  • The importance of early inclusion in rehabilitation program and exercise of older people after the hip fracture could be explained by the fact that physical activity influences the muscle strength, balance and eventually degree of hip pain [11]. Such determinants are very important particularly for individuals quality of life and could prevent further risks of comorbidities and falls later in life. It has been often hypothesized that the success of recovery is extremely dependent on the timeliness and adequacy of the treatment. While it is desirable to provide the best possible care as soon as possible the actual limitations that may exist in health-care systems due to a limited number of medical staff as well as limited capacity in rehabilitation programs may create need for appropriate planning and/or scheduling.
