Abstract

Objective To compare the difference in range of motion (ROM) between the dominant and nondominant hips of the athletes and to correlate the results with groin pain, as well as to compare the differences in ROM among the main hip injuries.

Methods The participants included 75 athletes, 56 males and 19 females, aged between 20 and 46 years old, who were diagnosed with hip injury. These individuals were subdivided according to the pathologies (femoroacetabular impact or labral lesion, adductor and pubic lesions and trochanteric syndrome) and characteristics of each hip were analyzed.

Results A total of 150 hips (right and left) were measured for the present analysis. When comparing the ROM of the injured hip with the healthy hip, no statistically significant differences were found. There were also no significant differences between the amplitudes of hip movement when the main pathologies were compared.

Conclusion The present study did not find differences in ROM rotation between the various pathologies of the hip.
