Assessing Hip Abduction and ER in patients with PFPS

Check out my buddy Chris Johnson’s blog post which highlights a deficit in which he believes is correlated with PFPS and related pathology:  combined hip abduction and ER ROM.

My initial thoughts: While pain is always an output from the brain, potentially this combination of mechanical stimuli during movement with these deficits could be inducing sensors on neurones which in turn could be warning the brain of potential tissue danger.

What do you think?
