Femoral Anterior Glide Syndrome with Lateral Rotation Syndrome

Femoral Anterior Glide Syndrome with Lateral Rotation Syndrome

Definition:

Your hip pain is located in the front of your hip or in the groin and is associated with excessive anterior glide of the femoral head (ball) in the acetabulum (socket) during lateral rotation activities both in flexion and extension.  These symptoms are usually most evident during weightbearing activities (cutting in sports) or sitting with the leg crossed.

Treatment:

  • Improve active posterior glide of the femoral head.
  • Improve muscle performance and activity of hip extensor and medial rotators.
  • Eliminate postures of excessive hip lateral rotation.
  • Improve activation / control of the gluteus minimus.
