Hip Case Study with Video Assessment

Want to efficiently and effectively diagnose hip dysfunction in a busy clinical setting?

Easier said than done, or is it?.

A video case study gives some new strategies and tests to make the clinical job easier.

What if I told you there is now a simplified flow chart approach to hip differential diagnosis which makes both manual treatment and specific exercise prescription clear and logical. Would it be worth your while to understand a little more? Well in this weeks Blog I provide you with the visual answers to understand the “Hip Differential Diagnosis Flow Chart” and a case study that puts it into practice with videos, as a picture tells a thousand words!

How much were we really taught about differential diagnosis and treatment of the hip in Undergraduate courses? Not very much at all, but via advances in hip imaging, arthroscopic surgery as well as muscle and tendon research, our knowledge about how the hip should be assessed and rehabilitated has exploded in the past 5 years.

During my Sports Physiotherapy Specialist preparations, it became clear that there are well in excess of 50 hip tests that are recommended for effective differential diagnosis of the hip as pathology is so widely varied. Authorities on the hip agree that differential diagnosis is the key and must be considered and addressed to optimise performance, but so often a combination of presenting signs and symptoms leaves the health professional confused and frustrated, even if you have remembered all of those 50+ tests.
The trick to understanding the hip lies in using a visual flow chart that divides presenting hip pathologies into 5 different categories and understand that more than 1 issue can be present and muddy the water. Using the flow chart approach to hip diagnosis will keep you on track to seeing the whole hip picture clearly.
Hip Differential Flowchart
The 5 categories that all assessment strategies from the beginning should aim to deferentially diagnose are:

  • 1) Inflammation/sensitisation
  • 2) Poor dynamic control/instability
  • 3) Hip Intra articular pathology
  • 4) Hip extra articular pathology
  • 5) Tendon issues

Once the presenting issues are identified and demystified, a treatment and exercise program can be designed with an evidence based rehab strategy. The case study link using Powerpoint and video shows part of an assessment protocol differentiating between anterior hip stiffness and anterior hip instability.

Free Hip Rehab Exercise Grid

Want to really understand  Hip rehab from the inside out? Here is a free resource with the answers.Tile_50_Hip

Why do some patients flare with exercises that should work to improve hip and dynamic function? 

We have all had those patients  that keep you awake at night thinking: why does their hip or pelvic pain keep flaring with Pilates and hip strengthening exercises that you know work with other clients? I know the term “psychological issues” is the  easy answer,  but make sure  you don’t throw the baby out with the bath water, by ignoring  local hip structures that may create a cascade of pain responses, cortical motor control inhibition and emotion.

I  spend many of my clinical hours seeing  complex  hip pain clients referred by Orthopaedic/Sports Specialists,  Physio colleagues and insurance companies asking for a multifaceted rehab strategy. Obviously psychological strategies  must always be considered and addressed  but differential diagnosis  of often  a combination of presenting
musculo-skeletal issues is also key! Once the presenting issues are identified and demystified,  a treatment and exercise program can be  designed with an evidence based  rehab strategy.

All the knowledge I have gathered and developed regarding hip-related issues as part of my Sports Physio Specialisation qualifications, I have put together in a comprehensive  but  easy-to-follow format in the Hip Rehab Exercise Grid which I offer to you totally free Click here to access. This is a must-have resource that you can start using today, with my compliments. My passion has always been to impart knowledge for the maximum good and if this knowledge helps you and your clients, then the years that have gone into understanding the hips have been worthwhile.

Want to know more and see the Hip Rehab Exercise Grid theory and exercises demonstrated and explained? Then choose from our 8 part “Optimising the Hip” online series Click to view our special offer including 2 for the price of 1  or join me for a Hip knowledge and food feast on my course Hip Differential Diagnosis and Prescriptive Exercises on March 19/20th, Holiday Inn Mascot Sydney. Believe me, the food and venue is second to none.

As a “great to see you face to face gift” I have decided to give all participants who attend the face to face course, the entire 8 online series “Optimising the Hip” completely free, so the understanding and learning can keep happening months after our time together on the course.

So whatever level of knowledge  you are looking for to  fill in your own clinical gaps in hip rehab, I  hope  reading this post and the free resources have made the time you have invested worthwhile. Sincerely Trish Wisbey-Roth, Specialist Sports Physiotherapist ( FACP)


These issues are identified and individual exercises are demonstrated in the new 8-part online Optimising the Hip video series.  This series consists of 8 Modules of approx 30 – 40 minutes each, ideally paced as a practical tutorial for  physiotherapists.Hip_Series
