Patient position : Supine lying
PT position : At the side or at the caudal end of the patient
Test : Patients' hip is flexed to 90 degree and knee fully flexed.The examiner uses one hand to hold the distal thigh/ or the knee of the side to be assessed such a way that the middle finger is placed over the greater trochanter while thumb is adjacent to the medial side of thigh proximal to knee, and uses the other hand to stabilise the other leg. The hip is then moved into abduction while simultaneously applyin pressure over the greater trochanter. The examiner then applies posterior and lateral pressure on medial side of the thigh with the thumb
Sign/Interpretation : Slipping of the femoral head over the posterior lip of the acetabulum and then reduces again when the pressure is removed indicates unstable hip joint.
