hip flex/ext rom

120, 20

hip abd/ass rom


hip IR/ER rom


resting pack hip

30 flex, 30 abd, 20 ER

closed pack hip

ext, abd, IR

capsular pattern hip

flex, IR, ext, abd

abd, IR, flex

transverse ligament hip

between space in acetabulum

illiac bura

squeezed out in weight bearing, moved in in traction

when pathology keeps pad out it decreases shock absorption and decreases lubrication

iliofemoral ligament

anterior band limits extension, lateral band limits adduction

pubofemoral ligament

limits external rotation and abduction

ischiofemoral ligament

limits internal rotation and adduction

signs of OA at hip (6)

pain, decreased AROM/PROM, decreased strength, decreased joint mobility, early morning stiffness and with inactivity, initially decrease in pain with movement

precaution posterolatral approach THA

avoid hip flex >90, adduction and IR

precaution anterolateral approach THA

avoid flex >90

hip extension, add & external rotation past neutral

combined hip flexion, abduction and external rotation

either THR avoid

high cross leg

transgluteal/trochanteric THR approach (6)

avoid adduction past neutral, no antigravity hip abduction for 6-8 wks, no WBing exercises for 12 weeks, sleep with abduction pillow, don't high cross, WB restricted 6-8 weeks

treatment of early stage OA

progress quickly to grade 3 if early stage, lateral traction, caudal distraction, stretch and strengthen (high rep low resistance), strengthen nonWBing if painful

ER/IR of knee in flexion

45 deg external, 30 deg internal

knee rotation in extension

5 deg ER

movement of fluid in knee with ROM

anterior with extension

posterior with flexion

arthrokinematics with small steps (0-25 deg flexion knee)

all roll, no glide

at end range all glide

collateral ligaments knee

tight in ER and extension

lateral knee stabilizers


ACL taught in

flex - anteromedial

posterolateral - taut in extension

taut in IR when knee flexed (same with PCL)

acl runs

from posterior medial lateral condyle to anterior lateral medial condyle, also attaches to meniscus

quad forces on patella

VM pulls at larger angle than VL

VL has posterior component

quad pull on tibia

anterior translation force closer to full extension, at >60 deg flexion little to no anterior translation

open chain no TKE post ACL

closed chain no deep squat

causes of excessive lateral tracking of the patella

tight lateral retinaculum, tight ITB, glute tightness, walking toed out

patella rotation follows

tibial rotation

during flexion force on patella


patella contact throughout flexion

0 deg inferior pole

45 eg large area in middle of patella

90 deg superior aspect only, max force

exercises for patellar pain

minisquat (not much flexion, 0-50), open chain do 30-60/45-90 deg flexion

post ACL repair initially exercise

closed chain 0-30, open chain 45-90

post PCL initially

open chain 0-25 deg extension

severe muscle contusion rehab

start with AROM, high rep, avoid vigorous stretching or strengthening

excessive pronation leads to

tibial internal rotation, femoral internal rotation, valgus at the knee, femoral adduction, increased Q angle

3 thins to examine for patellofemoral pain

tibial rotation, femur rotation, knee position

effect of weak hip ER

hip will internally rotate, increasing valgus at knee, increases compression at tibial and femur

causes of medial collapse

poor glute med/min strength, inability to come out of pronation, anteversion of hip causing decreased effectiveness of abductors

treatment for medial collapse

mule kicks, mini squat

resting pack talocrural

10 deg PF

closed pack talocrural

full dorsiflexion

minimum DF needed

10 deg or else will over pronate

distal fibular movement in plantarflexion

distal and posterior, rotates internally

distal fibular movement in dorsilexion

proximal and anterior, rotates externall

glide of subtalar inversion

lateral glide, internal rotation (adduction)

glide of subtalar eversion

medial, external rotation

open chain supination

calcaneus: PF, add, inverts

anterior, lateral, medial rotation

closed chain supination

calcaneus inverts (lateral glide)

talus DF and abd

tib posterior

medial rotation of navicular, plantarflexion, inversion

movement of navicular on talus in PF and inversion


movement of navicular on talus in DF and evs


all tarsal bones are

concave on convex except cuboid on calcaneus

resting position of MTPs

neutral or 10 deg extension

closed pack of MTPs

extension or full flexion

resting pack of DIP and PIP toes

slight flexion

closed pack of DIP and PIP

full extension

initial contact to foot flat

hit in 2-3 deg supinatoin, end in 3-4 deg pronation

foot flat to midstance

start to come out of pronation and get to neutral

midstance to heel off

neutral to 2 deg supination

heel off to toe off

continue supinating to 3 deg supination

do not post

rearfoot valgus

compensated rearfoot varus leads to

early excessive pronation and late pronation

compensated forefoot valgus leads to

excessive early supination

compensated forefoot varus leads to

calluses under the 2-4th toes, excessive pronation, from midstance though toe off

uncompensated subtalar varus leads to

excessive over supination throughtout entire cycle
