To further understand the athlete presenting with lateral or posterior hip pain, we need to understand what characteristics are common in those presenting with serious or nonmusculoskeletal pathology in order to appropriately refer to the appropriate health care provider or for further imaging. This chapter will explain in detail the typical patient presentation as well as evaluation techniques that can be used to rule these pathologies out.
2. Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome
Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) is one of the most misunderstood pathologies seen in the athletic population. This chapter will take you through the associated patient characteristics, evaluation findings, and radiological criteria needed for an accurate diagnosis. At the end of this chapter, you will understand what the subjective history and special testing can tell us and what it cannot.
3. Posterior Hip Pain
When looking at the athlete with posterior hip pathology, we need to understand that there are multiple structures that may be contributing. This may include deep gluteal pain syndrome, sacroliliac joint pathology, or pudental nerve entrapement. This course will systematically go through the evaluation of these pathologies, which includes identifying the specific structure(s) involved in DGPS (proximal hamstring pathology, piriformis syndrome, ischiofemoral impingement syndrome).
