Hip abductors

Hip abductors:
• gluteus medius and minimus
• patient lying on side opposite of that to be tested; limb that is being examined is flexed 90 degrees at knee and placed on the examination table behind the other knee (this slightly internally rotates hip)
• one hand is placed on pelvis to stabilise and other hand on distal aspect of thigh
• patient is asked to adduct limb against this resistance
• the test can be repeated with the knee of the limb to be examined in front of the other knee (tests the more posterior fibres)
