Hip range of motion, symptoms and cam deformity in football players
What is it about?
Range of motion (ROM) of the hip is found decreased in athletes with hip and groin pain. Decreased ROM was also found in individuals with a cam type deformity (aspherical femoral head) of the hip. How these factors interact is not know. This information adds knowledge that is relevant for those working in clinical settings with these types of patients.
Why is it important?
Diagnostics and treatment of patients with hip and groin pain remains a challenge. Injured athletes may encounter different specialists like physical therapists, surgeons and radiologists on their diagnostic and treatment pathway. Combining information from the clinical physical examination and complaints of the patients will assist specialists in their decision making.
