special test for tarsal tunnel syndrome
(+) Tinel's sign
special test for tibial nerve entrapment
Electromyelogram (EMG)
(+) Trendelenburg test indicates
weak gluteus medius muscle (unsupported hemihip will drop)
(+) Thomas's test indicates
hip flexion contracture (if present, pts straight leg will lift off of table)
(+) Ober's test indicates
ITB contracture (inability to adduct the hip past midline)
(+) Lachman's test indicates
ACL laxity (#1 test)
(+) anterior draw test indicates
ACL laxity
(+) pivot shift test indicates
ACL laxity (reduction of the knee w/ a clunk at 20-30 deg of flexion)
(+) posterior draw test indicates
PCL laxity (tibia displaces past the neutral medial jt line of femur)
(+) quad active drawer test indicates
PCL laxity (knee pain against resistance)
(+) posterior sag sign (Godfrey's sign) indicates
PCL laxity (posterior dubluxation of the tibia in relation to the femur)
(+) valgus stress test indicaes
MCL laxity (>5mm opening of medial joint)
(+) varus stress test indicates
LCL laxity (>5mm opening of lateral joint)
(+) excessive external rotation indicates
posterolateral corner injury (involved leg rotates more than uninvolved leg)
(+) posterolateral drawer test indicates
- isolated PCL injury if diminished translation
- combined PCL/LCL injury if increased translation
(+) reverse pivot shift test indicates
posterolateral corner injury (shift occurs w/ a clunk as knee flexed 20-30 deg)
(+) external rotation (varus) recurvatum test indicates
posterolateral corner injury (injured knee falls into varus and hyperextension, and tibia rotates externally)
(+) external rotation test indicates
posterolateral corner injury (injured limb passively rotates externally more than ininjured limb)
(+) joint line tenderness indicates
meniscal tear
(+) McMurray's test indicates
meniscal tear (painful clunk as torn meniscus is trapped during procedure)
(+) Apley's compression and distraction test indicates
meniscal tear (no pain on distraction (FOS otherwise), pain w/ external rotation = medial tear, pain w/ internal rotation = lateral tear)
(+) squat test (duck walk, Childress test)
meniscal tear (pain)
