Subjective and Objective Examination for Molly

Subjective Examination/ Patient Interview (continued)
Current History: Three days ago, the patient was walking to her car after work at night, she tripped over a
piece of rock and fell forward on her hands/elbows, more on the left side and left shoulder. She experienced
pain in low back and left buttock region. She was able to walk back to her work and was seen by a physician
next morning. She was given anti-inflammatory medication, a week off from work and a physical therapy
prescription. The intensity of pain had worsened the next morning. However, at present the intensity has
lessened with medication; the location of pain is primary in the left buttock area. She is scheduled to return to
work in one week after visiting her work-comp physician.
Past History: no history of intense back or hip pain. However, she reports occasional mild backache after a
long busy day, which she relates to aging and possible arthritis.

Subjective and Objective Examination for Molly

Objective Examination Tests and Measures
Physical Impairment Measures
Observation: no obvious deformity / shift / abnormal pattern is noted / navicular drop on left
LS ROM: WFL but extension is slightly limited and reproduces SI pain; left side-flexion is full but
reproduces L SI pain: flexion: PSIS on left moves more superior with flexion, no pain
Positional SIJ test/ Surface palpation: ASIS lower on left; iliac crest =; PSIS =
Hip ROM (iliosacral motion): hip flexion (Gillet): decrease posterior glide on the left; patient reports pain
in the L buttock area. Hip extension: WNL
Functional test: single leg balance (able to balance on left but reports pain)
Sitting Forward Flexion: normal
Positional test all negative
Pain provocation tests: FABER: anterior and posterior hip pain; gaenslens: positive; thigh thrust:
Leg Length Discrepancy: no apparent leg length discrepancy noted
SLR: form and force closure force closer helps to decrease pain with SLR; however the patient is still
unable to lift L leg (SLR)
Side lying: lumbar stability test: negative
Central PA: mild ache at L5-SI segment
Palpation: pain over left buttock
