223 Possible Causes for Weakness of Hip Flexors

  • Hurthle Cell Carcinoma

    Neurological examination showed predominant weakness of hip flexors (grade 3/5) and knee extensors (grade 1/5 right and grade 2/5 left side) and grade 4/5 for muscles acting[casereports.in]

  • Low Back Pain

    A Movement System Impairment examination indicated that she had lower abdominal weakness, gluteal weakness, and hip flexors that were short and stiff; hence, extension and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PELVIC TILT: Many health professionals believe that anterior pelvic tilt and increased lumbar lordosis indicate abdominal weakness and overly strong (or tight) hip flexors[livestrong.com]

  • Oncogenic Osteomalacia

    His symptoms began with gradual onset of hip flexor weakness and hip pain.[neurology.org] A 61-year-old man presented with generalized weakness, muscle wasting, and diffuse bone pain of 7 years' duration.[neurology.org]

  • Ataxia Telangiectasia

    She had weakness of hip flexors, positive Babinski's sign bilaterally, and diminished sensation to pinprick, light touch, and vibration distal to the mid-thigh.[ajnr.org]

  • Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathy

    In normal gait, the hip flexors eccentrically resist hip extension, but the hip flexor muscles of the impaired subjects (S1-3) were too weak to control extension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] decreased the demand on the hip flexors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Results showed how gait compensations for hip muscle weakness can produce independent (i.e. successful) ambulation, although at a reduced speed as compared to normal gait.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Radiculopathy

    Pain and paresthesias involve the medial thigh and knee, with weakness of hip flexors, hip adductors, and knee extensors; the knee jerk may be depressed or absent.[neurospine.wordpress.com] Weakness of hip flexion may occur; MSRs are normal.[neurospine.wordpress.com] Lateral femoral cutaneous neuropathy (meralgia paresthetica) may mimic L2 radiculopathy; the presence of hip flexor weakness suggests radiculopathy rather than meralgia.[neurospine.wordpress.com]

  • Sacral Radiculopathy

    Pain and paresthesias involve the medial thigh and knee, with weakness of hip flexors, hip adductors, and knee extensors; the knee jerk may be depressed or absent.[neurospine.wordpress.com] Weakness of hip flexion may occur; MSRs are normal.[neurospine.wordpress.com] Lateral femoral cutaneous neuropathy (meralgia paresthetica) may mimic L2 radiculopathy; the presence of hip flexor weakness suggests radiculopathy rather than meralgia.[neurospine.wordpress.com]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Despite aggressive treatment, he developed significant weakness in ankle dorsiflexors and hip and knee flexors and was no longer capable of consistently taking a step on his[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Steroid Myopathy

    Sixty-four percent of the patients (16/25) taking greater than or equal to 40 mg per day of prednisone were found on manual muscle testing to have hip flexor weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The standing stork test, which is commonly used to assess SI dysfunction, could not be performed because the patient had less than antigravity hip flexor strength.[jaoa.org] They neither correlated with the degree of hip flexor weakness as measured by CT, nor did they discriminate between patients receiving small doses and large doses of steroids[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anterior Thigh Pain

    Two months later, she experienced weakness of the hip flexors. She had no ankle or knee reflexes. LS MRI showed mild degenerative disease of the spines.[practicalneurology.com] In patients with iliopsoas tendonitis, which is also known as “internal snapping hip,” a “snap” or deep “clunk” may be heard over the tendon at the hip flexor crease as the[aafp.org] By Aziz Shaibani, MD, FACP, FAAN, FANA A 55-year-old diabetic woman presented with subacute severe right pelvis and anterior thigh pain that was followed by weakness of bilateral[practicalneurology.com]
