Accreditation Check:
Hip pain is a commonly encountered medical condition in physical therapy clinics. Diagnostic requirements include not only identifying a cause for the pain locally in the hip, but also ruling out pain from areas like the lumbar spine. This case reviews a 53-year-old male who presented to physical therapy with left hip pain and groin pain that began five weeks prio and gradually worsened. He works as a plumber, and is often squatting, stooping and climbing up and down stairs over the course of a long work day.
