HIP FUNCTIONAL IMPAIRMENTS EXIST BILATERALLY, ARE RELATED TO HIP STRENGTH AND PREDICT PATIENT -REPORTED OUTCOMES IN PATIENTS WITH CHONDROLABRAL PATHOLOGY
Presenter: Kemp JL
This module addresses:
Question: In people with chondrolabral pathology 1-2 years post
hip arthroscopy: (i) what are between-limb differences in functional
performance tests compared to age matched healthy controls; (ii) what
is the relationship between functional performance and hip strength and
(iii) are measures of functional performance associated with patientreported
Conclusion: Post-hip arthroscopic rehabilitation programs could include
hip strength exercises and functional performance retraining in order to
Key Practice Points:
• Greater strength in hip abduction, adduction and extension were
associated with better functional performance. Better bridge and hop
tests were associated with better PROs.
• This may guide clinicians in designing targeted rehabilitation programs.
