Lower hip ROM found in soccer players with previous hip, groin injuries

April 27, 2016

Read the Perspective from Shital N. Parikh, MD, FACS

Although results from a cross-sectional study of professional soccer players indicated decreased hip range of motion correlated with more hip- and groin-related symptoms and previous injuries, decreased motion did not significantly correlate with the presence of cam deformities.

Researchers examined 60 adult professional soccer players from two Dutch premier professional leagues with hip and groin symptoms. Investigators obtained player characteristics, hip range of motion (ROM) measurements, radiographs and questionnaires. The club medical staff had all players complete the Copenhagen Hip and Groin Outcome Score (HAGOS) questionnaire. Two physical therapists, who were blinded as to whether players had cam deformities, conducted either the bent knee fall out test or the rotational hip ROM test on the players.
