Hip pelvis and thigh

Hip, Pelvis, and Thigh

Femoral acetabular joint

Femoral-Acetabular Joint

  • This area contains some of the strongest muscles in the body.

  • Tremendous demands on those muscles.

  • Vulnerable to injuries that can sideline athletes for long periods of time.

Anatomy of the hip pelvis thigh

Anatomy of the Hip, Pelvis, & Thigh

  • Ball & socket joint

  • Acetabulum- hip socket

    • Very deep

    • Covered by very thick, strong ligaments

Bones of the hip pelvis thigh

Bones of the Hip, Pelvis, & Thigh

  • Femur

    • Greater Trochanter

    • Femoral Neck

    • Femoral Head

  • Ilium

  • Ischium

    • Ischial Tuberosity

  • Pubis

Ligaments of the femoral acetabular joint

Ligaments of the Femoral-Acetabular Joint

  • Iliofemoral Ligament

  • Ischiofemoral Ligament

Movements of the femoral acetabular joint

Movements of theFemoral-Acetabular Joint

  • Flexion

  • Extension

  • Abduction

  • Adduction

  • Internal Rotation

  • External Rotation

  • Circumduction

Preventing hip injuries

Preventing Hip Injuries

  • Proper flexibility training

  • Appropriate equipment (football, hockey, etc.)

  • Proper strength training

Thigh injuries

Thigh Injuries

  • Contusion

    • Mechanism: direct blow

    • Signs & Symptoms: pain, swelling, bleeding, loss of function

      • 3 grades - determined by severity of symptoms

    • Treatment: PRICE, stretching, ultrasound, padding

Thigh injuries1

Thigh Injuries

  • Myositis Ossificans

    • Mechanism: result of quad contusion

      • Bone forms within muscle due to calcium build-up at injury site.

    • Signs & Symptoms: pain, weakness, loss of function

    • Rx: RICE, padding, NO ULTRASOUND

Thigh injuries2

Thigh Injuries

  • Strain

    • Quadriceps - sudden contraction, stretching

    • Hamstrings - excessive force due to muscle imbalance.

      • Re-injury very common

    • Groin - stretching

      • involves adductors and hip flexors

    • Signs & Symptoms: pain, loss of function, deformity

      • 3 grades

    • Rx: RICE

Thigh injuries3

Thigh Injuries

  • Acute Femoral Fracture

    • Mechanism: direct blow, fall from height

    • Signs & Symptoms: pain, deformity, unable to bear weight

    • Treatment: splint, 911

      • risk damage to soft tissue, arteries, and nerves

Femoral fracture

Femoral Fracture

Thigh injuries4

Thigh Injuries

  • Femoral Stress Fx (occurs at femoral neck)

    • Mechanism: overuse

      • usually associated with poor eating, menstrual irregularities

    • Signs & Symptoms: similar to strain or tendinitis but does not resolve

    • Treatment: rest, Non-Weight Bearing

Femoral neck stress fracture

Femoral Neck Stress Fracture

Hip injuries

Hip Injuries

  • Iliac Spine Contusion (Hip Pointer)

    • Mechanism: direct blow

    • Signs & Symptoms: pain, swelling, ecchymosis

      • abdominal and hip muscles attach on the iliac crest

    • Rx: RICE

Hip injuries1

Hip Injuries

  • Greater Trochanteric Bursitis

    • Mechanism: direct blow, repetitive hip flexion, extension, & abduction

    • Signs & Symptoms: pain at lateral hip, occasionally ‘snapping’ sensation

    • Treatment: rest, corticosteroids

Hip injuries2

Hip Injuries

  • Hip Subluxation/Dislocation

    • Mechanism: extreme force, usually posterior dislocations or severe internal rotation accompanied with a posterior blow to the femur.

      • More common in car accidents than sports

    • Signs & Symptoms: hip internally rotated and slightly flexed, extreme pain

    • Call Ambulance immediately

Hip dislocation

Hip Dislocation

Hip injuries3

Hip Injuries

  • Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease

    • Decrease in circulation in femoral head; avascular necrosis of articular cartilage

    • More common in children & teens who are still growing

    • Signs & Symptoms: persistent pain in knee & groin, walking with limp with all other injuries ruled out
