The purpose of this review is to analyze the research literature that has examined the effectiveness of physical therapy in the management of hip fractures in elderly persons. Using literature databases and keywords, we located relevant studies. Fifteen studies met the criteria and were then categorized according to Sackett's levels of evidence. Six studies were graded at level I, six at level II, and three at level V, with level I having the highest level of evidence. From the levels of evidence, one grade A, three grade B, and two grade C recommendations were developed, with grade A being the most significant recommendation. Clinical recommendations are offered about patients with dementia, therapeutic exercise, and when and for how long rehabilitation should continue. In addition, future research directions are provided.
