Diagnostic Dilemma Origin of hip pain can be difficult to identify MUST DISTINGUISH BETWEEN INTRA- AND EXTRA-ARTICULAR PAIN
COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION OF THE ADULT HIP Five points for five body positions –STANDING –SITTING –SUPINE –LATERAL –PRONE ADDITIONAL TESTS AS NEEDED
STANDING EXAMINATION General –Laxity, Body Habitus, Posture Gait –Swing, Stance, Foot Progression, Pelvis Spine –Lateral, Posterior, Scoliosis, Lordosis Pelvis –Shoulder height, Iliac Crest Trendelenburg Test –Positive, Shift or Weakness
STANDING EXAMINATION Gait a.Trendelenburg b.Abductor lurch c.Antalgic d.Foot progression angle a.Excessive External Rotation b.Excessive Internal Rotation e.Short Leg Limp
STANDING EXAMINATION Trendelenburg Test –Weak abductors lead to the pelvis dropping to the unsupported side With Compensation –Severe weakness the pt is unable to lift the opposite side without leaning toward the wt bearing limb to decrease the moment arm.
SUPINE EXAMINATION Passive ROM –Flexion, Abduction, Adduction, IR, ER Strength Testing –Flexion, Adduction, Abduction Provocative Pain Test Pubalgia Testing Special Tests –Thomas Test –Patrick / Faber’s –Instability Test (extension / ER)
LATERAL EXAMINATION Palpation GT, ABDUCTORS, SI, ISCHIAL BURSAE Obers Test FLEXION, EXTENSION Passive / Active ROM MEDIUS / MAX FADDIR IMPINGEMENT Lateral Rim Impingement
Palpation 1 SI 2 Greater Trochanter Medius, Minimus Maximus origin 3 Ischial Tuberosity 4 Piriformis
Lateral Hip Anatomy Gluteus MediusGluteus Minimus

Layer 4: Neuromechanical Layer Structures: TLS Plexus, Lumbopelvic structures, LE structures Purpose: Neuromuscular linking and functional control of the entire segment as it functions within its environment Nerve compression syndromes Pain syndromes Neuromuscular dysfunction Spine referral patterns
Patient Selection Hip loaded pelvis usually rotates over fixed femur creating anterior and medial forces with rotary moments Neuromuscular Research Laboratory University of Pittsburgh
LABRAL TEARS Combine these forces with dynamic or static overload to the joint…
Treatment Plan The location and quality of the pain should correspond to the mechanical diagnosis and primary and secondary injury patterns. If they do, then correcting the mechanical problems and primary and secondary injuries should lead to a good outcome….
