    Sacral Tubercles

    Iliac Crest

    PSIS
  2. Positive:

    1) Inability to raise tight
    Indicates: Iliopsoas spasm

    2) Pain in the anterior thigh
    Indicates: Inflammation if lumbar nerve roots

    3) Pain in the lumbar region

    Right Rotation: 30
  4. Positive: Radiating pain and/or posterior thigh pain

    Indicates: Sciatic radiculopathy or tight hamstrings. Positive between 35-70 degrees = possible discogenic sciatic radiculopathy (Cipriano).
  5. Positive: Localized pain, low back or radiating pain down the leg.

    Indicates:
    1) Pain before spinouses close = Possible SI problem

    2) Pain after spinouses close = Possible lumbo-sacral problem
