Neuromuscular hip biomechanics and pathology in the athlete.

Author information

Biomechanics Research Laboratory, Steadman-Hawkins Research Foundation, 181 West Meadow Drive, Suite 1000, Vail, CO 81657, USA.


Although hip arthroscopic techniques have been developed and evolved over the last 5 to 10 years to help active athletes, the mechanisms of athletic hip injuries across various sports are not well understood. The purpose of this article is to review the literature related to the osseous and ligamentous support as well as the neuromuscular control strategies associated with hip joint mechanics. The neuromuscular contributions to hip stability and mobility with respect to gait will be provided because this data represents the largest body of knowledge regarding hip function. Further, this article will present and describe probable mechanisms of injury in sporting activities most often associated with hip injury in the young athlete.
