Abstract

Among people who participate in sports, extra-articular soft tissue injuries around the hip are common. The hamstring, quadriceps, adductor, and abductor muscle groups are often the site of soft tissue injury. Overlapping conditions make it difficult to identify the primary cause of hip pain and dysfunction. A proper evaluation and diagnosis of the impairment are crucial for the selection of interventions and quick return to play. The purpose of the clinical commentary is to present an evidence based stepwise progression in the evaluation and treatment of several common soft tissue injuries of the hip.
