This unique and comprehensive text discusses the main causes of posterior hip pathology and recent advances in evaluation and treatment of those conditions, including posterior hip pain caused by discogenic, intrapelvic and extrapelvic disorders. Opening with description of the specific anatomy and biomechanics of the posterior hip and the etiology of hip disease, the next few chapters superbly discuss and illustrate the clinical, psychological and radiological assessment of the patient. Analysis with differential diagnosis of various causes of posterior hip pain, including nerve entrapment and impingement, is then presented in detail, followed by discussion of the essentials of the lumbopelvic complex as a source of pain. Later chapters cover vascular claudication as a cause of posterior hip pain, how to evaluate and manage the perioperative scenario, and physical therapy evaluation and treatment.
Presenting the latest in examination, diagnostic tools, and surgical and therapeutic techniques from around the world, Posterior Hip Disorders is a solid resource for current and future generations of orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, physiatrists, spine surgeons, sports medicine specialists, rheumatologists, primary care physicians, and physical therapists.
