Rehabilitation of Soft Tissue Injuries of the Hip and Pelvis.

Authors:  Tyler T, Fukunaga T, Gellert J

Soft tissue injuries of the hip and pelvis are common among athletes and can result in significant time loss from sports participation.  Rehabilitation of athletes with injuries such as adductor strain, iliopsoas syndrome, and gluteal tendinopathy starts with identification of known risk factors for injury and comprehensive evaluation of the entire kinetic chain.  Complex anatomy and overlapping pathologies often make it difficult to determine the primary cause of the pain and dysfunction.  The purpose of this clinical commentary is to present an impairment-based, stepwise progression in evaluation and treatment of several common soft tissue injuries of the hip and pelvis.
