Flashcards in Hip Lab Deck (4):
What are the components of hip observation?
B) Sagittal View
C) Anterior/Posterior View
A) Symmetry, muscle bulk, bruising, scaring.
B) Pelvic alignment (Plumb line, Pelvic tilt)
C) Symmetry, relative height (PSIS, ASIS, gluteal folds, iliac crest), signs of hip rotation (squinting patella, femoral neck alignment).
How is the Weber-Barstow Manoeuvre performed?
Used prior to leg length measurement to achieve a standardized position.
1. Pt in supine active flex both knees.
2. Therapist stabilize ankles on the plinth.
3. Pt lifts pelvis up and down in a controlled manner.
4. Legs passively extended by the therapist.
How is Leg Length measured?
What is a significant discrepancy?
Pt in supine using a tape measure. ASIS to lateral malleolus of the same leg. OR ASIS to the medial malleolus of the same leg.
Visual Scan to Assess for Inequalities of Femur or Tibia Length
Femur: Pt in supine, hip and knees are passively flexed to 90 degrees. Skyline view of the patella is used to assess for inequality.
Tibia: Pt lies prone, knees passively flexed to 90 degrees by the therapist. Skyline view of the calcaneus is used to asses for inequality.
>2cm difference may be relevant.
