In martial arts, particularly taekwondo, a good kick can be performed well above an athlete's head. The proper positioning for a taekwondo side kick places the stance leg in 90 of external rotation. The stance leg must then sustain significant loads while the opposite leg performs the kick. Similar to the mechanism in golfers, the forced external rotation and axial loading in the stance leg (not the kicking leg) may cause anterior capsular laxity and elongation of the iliofemoral ligament. As a result of the increased translation of the femoral head with respect to the acetabulum, labral and chondral injuries may follow.
Some yoga positions extend beyond the limitations of traditional posterior hip precautions, participants can often substitute an alternative position with the instructor's guidance. Regarding martial arts, patients should avoid sparring and high kicks, but may return to technical forms. Surgical technique, approach to the hip, and implant choice may also increase the relative safety of returning to these exercises.
Ten percent to 24 of athletic injuries in children are hip related, and 5 to 6 of adult sports injuries originate in the hip and pelvis 3 . Ballet dancers are most likely to have a hip-related injury, and runners, hockey players, and soccer players are also prone to hip injuries 3 . Athletes participating in rugby and martial arts have also been reported as having increased incidence of degenerative hip disease 4-10 . Hip pain often stems from some type of sports-related injury 11-14 . In patients presenting with hip pathology, the hip is not recognized as the source of pain in 60 of all cases 15 .
Atraumatic instability can occur due to overuse or repetitive motion. This is a common complaint in athletes who participate in sports involving repetitive hip rotation with axial loading (ie, figure skating, gold, football, baseball, martial arts, ballet, gymnastics, and so forth). The history provides the greatest clues to the diagnosis because patients can usually describe the motion that causes the pain such as swinging a golf club during a drive or throwing a football toward the sideline. These repetitive stresses may directly injure the iliofemoral ligament or labrum and alter the balance of forces in the hip. These abnormal forces cause increased tension in the joint joint capsule, which can lead to capsular redundancy, painful labral injury, and subsequent microinstability. On physical examination, patients will usually experience anterior hip pain while in the prone position with passive hip extension and external rotation 1,7 .
There are very few published series following arthroscopic microfracture for full-thickness chondral defects of the hip. In 2002, Byrd et al 27 reported on nine patients with an inverted acetabular labrum. Three of these patients were treated using a microfracture technique. At a minimum 2-year follow-up, those patients that underwent microfracture were the only patients to return to a level of activity higher than simple activities of daily living. These three patients' activities included martial arts, horseback riding, and fitness activities.
Sport activity and injury can enhance this irritation and lead to eventual tearing of the acetabular labrum and thinning of the adjacent cartilage 9 . The concept of femoroacetabular impingement has been developed to describe this phenomenon 13 . Cam-type impingement occurs from loss of femoral neck offset (Fig. 4), leading to abnormal contact during flexion and internal rotation. Pincer-type impingement is the result of a retroverted ace-tabulum creating an anterior wall overhang 13 . Both types of impingement can occur in combination 13 . The labrum is encountered first during contact with both types of impingement (Fig. 5). Continued insult to the labrum, initially in the anterolateral zone, can lead to bruising (Fig. 6) and give the labrum a short, round appearance 9 . Eventually tearing can occur with detachment from the acetabular rim and direct chondral injury. Repetitive activity, as seen in golfers 12 and martial arts practitioners, can lead to bruising and tearing...
An endless list of available exercises to consider for overall health promotion exists (i.e., weight lifting, conditioning, isometric pilates, aerobic, stretching, martial arts, specific sports, etc.). Exercise can positively impact any person's health and in particular a person with PD by increasing muscle strength (thereby increasing one's ability to get up, walk, swallow, speak, and breath), flexibility (reducing muscle rigidity joint stiffness and increasing range of motion), and bone density (reducing the risk of a limb fracture related to falling). Additional benefits include enhanced cardiovascular and respiratory function and subsequent blood flow and delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the brain. Exercise may also increase daily energy levels, reduce emotional and mental stress, improve mood by raising endorphin levels, and result in better sleep patterns. Many controlled, randomized clinical studies of the benefits of exercise in the elderly can be found in the medical...
