Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture
Knowledge Gaps and Future Research Needs (2)
How rehabilitation techniques may affect either acute or chronic pain in patients with hip fracture is unexplored.
Improvements in pain relief by acupressure, muscular relaxation therapy, and TENS support the pursuit of further clinical research.
The connections between relief from pain and improvements in mobility, length of hospital stay, and ultimate recovery of function and quality of life are generally unexplored. Harms that may extend beyond the acute-care setting are also unexamined.
