Presentation on theme: "The Hip and Thigh. MOTIONS What do these motions look like? Hip Flexion Hip Extension Hip Adduction Hip Abduction Hip External Rotation Hip Internal Rotation."— Presentation transcript:
Are you more likely to strain or contuse your: Quadriceps? Hamstring? Groin?
Quadriceps Contusion Cause Direct blow to the quad Signs and symptoms Pain Loss of function – can’t straighten knee Decreased knee flexion Graded on a scale of 1 – 4 1 not so bad 4 is the worse
Quadriceps Contusion Treatment RICE immediately Knee has to be flexed when you ice Compression to prevent swelling If not treated properly, it can lead to bone formation in the muscle
Muscle Strain Causes Inflexibility Poor warm up Fatigue Overstretch
Quadriceps Strain Signs and Symptoms Pulling / burning sensation in quad Decreased knee flexion Decreased knee extension strength
Hamstring Strain Signs and Symptoms Pulling / burning sensation in hamstring Decreased strength – knee flexion Decreased hip flexion with knee straight
Groin/Hip Flexor Strain Signs and Symptoms Pulling / burning sensation in anterior or medial thigh Pain with flexion and adduction Weak in these motions with poor range of motion Groin strains can be very painful and take a long time recover.
Muscle Strain Treatment RICE for 1 st 48 -72 hours Compression Wrap for activity Rehabilitation for strength and flexibility
Stress Fracture in Femur Cause Pounding activity like running Signs and Symptoms Constant pain that gets worse with activity Treatment Rest from activity Non-weight bearing (crutches)
Femur Fracture Cause Fall from great height Hit by opponent Signs and Symptoms Go into shock Extreme pain Thigh externally rotated and/or shortened Treatment Call 911 Keep them in position you find them
Hip Dislocation Cause Very difficult to do – this is a very stable joint Takes a lot of force to dislocate this joint Signs and Symptoms Most common is posterior dislocation Presents with hip slightly flexed, adducted and internally rotated Treatment Medical emergency – call 911 Do not move
Hip Pointer Contusion to the iliac crest Muscles attach there Cause Direct blow Signs and Symptoms Hurts to lift leg, abdominal crunch, sneeze, cough Treatment Ice and a lot of it Gentle stretching as tolerated
