TRENDELENBURG TEST:

Patient position : Standing
PT position : Posterior to the patient with clear observation of the dimples overlying the posterior superior iliac spines
Test : Patient is asked to stand on one leg and then asked to repeat standing on the the other leg alone.
Sign/Interpretation : If pelvis remains in the same position or descends on the unsupported side during single leg standing, it indicates weakness of the gluteus medius muscle on the supported side. If the patient walks with a lurch towards the supported side to compensate the pelvic drop, it is called the 'Trendelenburg lurch'.

CRAIG TEST:

Patient position : Prone lying
PT position : At the side of the hip to be assessed
Test : Examiner with one hand holds the distal tibio-fibula of the leg to be assessed and flexes the knee to 90 degree position while using the other hand to stabilise the pelvis as well as palpates the posterior aspect trochanter of the femur. Examiner then passively rotates the hip internally and externally until the greater trochanter is parallel to the table or at its most lateral position. The degree of anteversion is then estimated.
Sign/Interpretation : A higher degree of anteversion ( normal 8-15 degree in adult) indicates excessive medial rotation and decreased lateral rotation of the hip.
