  • Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis

    Characterized by limited internal rotation and abduction of the hip.[] .  The hip held in flexion, abduction, and external rotation.  There is substantial reduction in the arc of motion of the hip in all planes, and motion is usually painful[] The hip is typically held in a position of flexion, external rotation and abduction, similar to that seen in an elderly patient with a displaced hip fracture.[]

  • Hip Sprain

    The likely influence of a localised injury in a distal joint on the function of proximal muscles is an important consideration in assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. However, little experimental evidence in humans exists in this area. Accordingly, a controlled study was carried out, in which the function[…][]
