  1. What do you recommend to someone who has 90 degrees of hip external rotation but almost less than 10 degrees of internal rotation?

  2. Hip external vs. hip external rotation normally exists proportionally, about 2:1, in ambulatory adults (kids have more IR ROM).

    For instance, if we measure 30 degrees of hip external rotation we might expect to find about 15 degrees of hip internal rotation.

    Specific populations (eg: runners and geriatric people) tend to have dramatically less IR ROM.


  3. So how many degrees of rotation would be considered "normal", or at what point would you consider someone to have hip internal rotation vs not having it?
