Starting with a video description of basic anatomy of the hip joint:
FABERE TEST/ PATRICK TEST:
Patient position : Supine lying
PT position : At the side of the hip contralateral to the one to be assessed.
Test : The examiner places the foot of the patient's affected leg on the opposite knee and slowly pushes the knee towards the table lateraly using one hand ( for flexion, abduction and external rotation of the hip), all while stabilizing the unaffected hip using the other hand.
Sign/Interpretation :
(a)Pain in anterior hip region indicates hip dysfunction,
(b)Pain in posterior and lateral sides indicates sacroiliac joint dysfunction or low lumbar dysfunction.

Test : Examiner holds the patients affected side distal tibiofibula and passively flexes the knee  beyond 90 degree and internally rotates the hip
Sign/Interpretation : Pain in the hip joint indicated hip joint dysfunction, while pain in the sacroiliac joint indicates sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

BUTTOCK TEST:

Patient postion : Lying supine
PT position : At the side of the hip to be assessed
Test : The examiner stabilises the patient's knee with one hand and lifts the leg using the other hand supported at the heel (SLR ); if pain is elicited examiner flexes the knee by few degrees and flexes the hip further.
Sign/Interpretation : If the hip flexion is not increased with knee flexion, it indicates possible lesion in the buttock region such as bursitis, tumor or abscess and not a lumbar spine dysfunction.

TORQUE TEST:

Patient position : Supine lying, close to the edge of the table both lateraly and inferiorly.
PT position : At the foot end of the table.
Test : The examiner extends the hip of the patient to be tested over the edge of the tabel till the pelvis starts moving. Examiner then grasps the distal end of patient's leg with one hand while placing the other hand  over proximal femur. The examiner then internally rotates the hip using the distally placed arm whil applying a slow posterolateral pressure with proximal hand to stretch/stress the capsular ligament for 20 seconds.
Sign/Interpretation : Excessive movement in the hip joint indicates instability of the joint.

THOMAS TEST:

Patient position : Lying supine
PT position : At the side of the hip to be assessed
Test : Patient is instructed to flex the uninvolved hip towards the chest as far as possible and hold it in that position
Sign/Interpretation : If the contralateral hip becomes flexed along with the other hip, it indicates a fixed flexion contracture of hip.(Rectus femoris test[ modified Thomas test or Ely test] can be done to confirm this)
MODIFIED THOMAS TEST:
Patient position : Supine at the foot end of the table with both knees hanging out of the edge of the table.
PT position : At the foot end of the table
Test : Patient is asked to flex both knee towards the chest and hold it and then release the hip to be assessed alone.
Sign/Interpretattion : If the released hip cannot be extended but the knees are relaxed in flex position, it indicates Psoas contracture and if the knee is in extended position it indicates Recus femoris contracture
