Acetabular Labral Tear Clinical Evaluation

  • Groin pain exacerbated by hip internal rotation.  May have pain with sitting, clicking, and buttock pain.
  • Positive impingement test.  Positive posterior impingement test is more common in patients with a posterior labral tear.
  • Duchene sign = pt leans to the affected side while in stance phase of gait; indicates hip pathology.
  • Loss of motion suggests intra/juxta-articular process
  • Patrick's test: Groin pain with forcing hip into figure-of-4 postion, indicates hip pathology
  • Stinchfield test: resisted straight leg raise causes groin pain, indicates hip pathology
  • Labral pathology indicated by palpable click with moving from flexion/IR/adduction to extention/ER/abduction
  • Snapping:  Iliopsoas tendon snaps over iliopectineal eminence when flexed hip is extended with pt supine.  Iliotibial band snaps over greater trochanter when standing pt rotates the adducted hip in stance phase.
