Checking for "version" in the hips. Sometimes our athletes may have bony adaptations to their hips and simply stretching or forcing them in end-range is not a good idea. This is one of the assessments Kevin does with our hockey guys. Great stuff to try.

  • In prone when you palpate the greater trochanter and move them into er/ir you know the motion is coming at the hip.  Also, you can put your hand on their pelvis so that you are sure to getting only hip motion.  You do not do a craigs test in standing from what I learned.   

  • Why do you do the test in the seated position or lying position rather than standing? When doing the seated ext/int ROM test is the driver coming from the knee or the pelvis?  And wouldnt that make a difference if the driver came from the hip?
