Eval, Reset, Stabilize Hip Flexion

The PT in this mini-case has persistent anterior hip pain and weakness with hip flexion s/p Total Hip Arthroplasty 4 months ago. In this mini-case I go over Eval, Reset, and Stabilize of the Hip for Hip Flexion
  • how to test for endurance of hip flexors with perceived pain/tightness
  • using EDGE Mobility Band to reduce perception of threat
  • using manual resistance to re-educate the new range
  • repeated hip flexion to reset, eccentric hip flexion to stabilize, followed by Goblet Squats, eccentric isometrics
Possible needed treatments to use in this case
  • IASTM to anterior thigh
  • pain free psoas inhibition
