Pain in right hip with referral down the right leg
- Left foot everts more then right.
- Right glute is tight
- Right IT band is thicker then the left
- Right hip is higher then the left
- The rib cage is tilted to the right due to the higher right hip approximating the right side of the rib cage to the right pelvis- there will likely be a short right Quadratus Lumborum and lateral fibres of the right oblique abdominal musculature.
- The torso rotates to the left- the bulk of the right external obliques are apparent on the right side view which would cause this rotation
- There is a c-curve scoliosis of the spine to the left which would be expected with a higher right hip
- Head is rotated to the right- the medial left clavicle is elevated in relation to the right which may indicate tightness of the left SCM .
- Slight lack of right shoulder flexion- this will be related to the right tilt of the rib cage and ensuing scapula position on the rib cage.
- Slight internal rotation of right hip with compensatory lateral rotation of the right tibia
There is a slight valgus shift of the left knee in single leg stance Whlist standing on the right leg causes a valgus shift of the right knee and trunk lean to the right indicating lengthening or weakness of the right gluteus medius
- The right external rotators of the hip were found to be weak and lengthened with excessive lateral rotation of the right tibia.
- During hip extension the right hip adducts and medially rotates which would indicate dominance of the right adductors
- Right hip abductors were found to be weak
- Check if there is a structurally longer right leg
- Check if the scoliosis is structural
- Gait assessment
- Check rotation of ilia
- Check the flare of rib cage
- Check length of right adductors
