TIP 325 – ROM Hip Lateral Rotation Alternative

TIP 325 – ROM Hip Lateral Rotation

Alternative Procedure 2

Zero

  • Prone
  • Knee in 900 flexion

Procedure

  • Ask the client to bring the foot inwards for lateral rotation
  • Start the motion for the client or tap against the outside of the heel to indicate which way to move

Nota Bene

  • Alternative procedure 2 does not lend itself well to AROM as the weight of the lower leg is moving away medially from the rotational axis it will contribute to increase the speed of rotation
  • The medial rotators will then engage to decelerate lateral rotation
