  • Flexion-relaxation response – refers to the electromyographic silence of the lumbar spine extensors in end ranges of flexion, thought to be why hip extensors activate first to rise from a flexed position.
  • Given the findings of Lee and Shum4,8,10-13, these findings do not seem to be in so much contrast to expectations, but perhaps representative of the arthrokinematics of many patients with low back pain.
  • Image is of control, note early activity of OI, multifidus during gait and early quieting of biceps femoris.
  • Hip–Spine SyndromeThe concept of a biomechanical link between the hip joint and the lumbar spine has been described as hip–spine syndrome (HSS).40 (offierski and mcnap – hip spine syndrome – spine – ’83) HSS specifically depicts the influence of a pathological hip joint on the alignment of the spine and subsequent muscle length and joint forces.40The most recent documentation of this relationship has been that of severehip osteoarthritis (OA) potentially causing abnormal spinal sagittal alignment andensuing LBP.41 Ben-Galim et al41 evaluated the effects of surgical treatment of hipOA on low back disability in patients preoperative and postoperative total hipreplacement and found significant (P < .01) improvements in both visual analogscores for LBP and Oswestry Disability Index scores after surgery that remainedat the 2-year follow-up.Other specific related interactions of the hip and spine in HSS can include ahip-flexion contracture resulting in compensatory hyperlordosis of the lumbarspine or a posteriorly inclined pelvis with increased kyphotic posture and primaryor rapidly destructive hip OA.40,42–48 In each of these examples, although there isa relationship between the hip and spine, the evidence demonstrating the significanceof its effect on LBP is deficient.Although the biomechanical influences of the hip on LBP are not fully evidentat this time, the current level of evidence does support a regional relationshipbetween the 2 areas. From the preliminary work of Ben-Galim et al,41 one canbegin to appreciate the importance of further investigating hip ROM, as well asregional soft-tissue characteristics, in patients with LBP.Offierski and McNabb published a paper describing a “hip-spine syndrome” in which patients with pain in the lumbo-pelvic-hip region can have concurrent pathologies in both the lumbar spine and hip joints. 1  They stated that the inability to properly determine the primary source of a patient’s pain may lead to inappropriate or incomplete treatments.  Additional studies have been published that support the existence of hip-spine syndrome in patients with the primary complaint of LBP.2-5  .      Offierski CM, MacNabb MB.  Hip-Spine Syndrome.  Spine. 1983;8(3):316-321.2.      Fogel GR, Esses SI.  Hip spine syndrome: management of coexisting radiculopathy and arthritis of the lower extremity.

  • NPRS (Childs, Piva 2005, Spine, reported for 1 week)ODI:39%HHS: 24%66% reduced NPRS (1 didn’t report pain)100% at least 4 on GROC= moderate improvement
  • The intervention for these two patients consisted of an impairment-based approach … Here you can see some of the exercises performed. On the left, basic strength training at 0-6 weeks, In the middle more dynamic training at 6-10weeks, and on the right, functional plyometric exercises at 10-14 weeks. Note that the exercises were steeped in neuromuscular recruitment of the proper muscles and that this trial focused somewhat extensively on hip strengthening. Both patients experienced significant decreases in pain, increased function, muscle strength and endurance.
  • I do want to talk specifically about the concept of VMO strengthening. Many PT’s hold onto what they were taught back in the 80’s and 90’s about things. The VMO is one example. It’s not possible for us to selective activate any one part of the quad over another, since they all come from the same nerve supply. No evidence exists that consistently supports this concept. However, it’s not uncommon to see this in the clinic, or read articles that includes statements like the one you see here, which are perhaps logical from an embryologic standpoint, but not from a practical application standpoint. The key is to focus on the nm control of the entire lower extremity kinetic chain and leave behind the focus on the VMO.

    • 1. Hipsters Unite!Examining the hip’s influence for patients with back pain. Eric K. Robertson, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT Assistant Professor Texas State University
    • 2. Hipster Defined What is a hipster? You‘d be surprised. It could very well be YOU. A hipster is an individual—one that usually fits within a certain subculture. Which subculture? It doesn‘t matter. Because the definition for hipster is so very vague In its most simplest terms, a hipster is an individual who wants to know things.Source: quotes from a Hipster named Adam  (http://travelsofadam.com/what-is-a-hipster/)
    • 3. Fact #52―If you were to lay every hipster in the world end to end, we don‘t know the length of the line they would form, but there would be an Apple store at the end of the line.‖
    • 4. Austin: Epic Hipster Population *Ranked #2 behind Seattle, WA for hipsterism by designtrends.com
    • 5. Actual Austin HipstersA confirmation that a) hipsters do exist in a nearby geographiclocale, and that b) sometimes they gather, and that c)whatever, I‘m going to just write what I want in the true spirit ofhipsterism.
    • 6. Actually What This Talk is REALLY About:An examination into the age-old concept that a) yes, the hip bone isconnected to the back bone, that b) when one hurts, the other mostoften suffers, and that c) by paying attention to trends in movementpatterns we can flesh out how to direct treatments at the hip that mayassist us in treating patients with low back pain.

    • 12. Which of the following are predictors of LBP?• Bulging disc without herniation or root • History of depression contact • History of• Bulging disc without occupational-related herniation but with LBP nerve root contact • Fearful beliefs about• Herniated/Prolapsed work as reported in a discs survey• End plate changes / Shmorl‘s nodes• Foraminal or canal Psychosocial stenosis findingsPhysical findings/ Imaging
    • 13. How did you do? Physically:  Only disc contact with nerve root has been shown to be a WEAK predictor of LBP Psychosocial:  Depression, occupational injuries, and fear- avoidance are all STRONG predictors of LBP Implications in terms of pain?
    • 14. Summary of LBP Predictors ? Physical Psychosocial
    • 15. The Hip – Spine Relationship It‘s hip to have a high yield!
    • 16. The Hip Bone‘s Connected to the… Hip – Spine Syndrome (Offierski and MacNab, 1983)  Proposed a formal relationship between hip and spine pain  Three subgroups  Simple – Primary Dysfunction of one area, but symptoms in another  Complex – Dysfunction in both hip and spine  Secondary – Hip and Spine pain are dependent and inter-related  This tight hip flexors and increased lumbar lordosis, as example
    • 17. Offierski and MacNab, 1983
    • 18. Hip – Spine Syndrome Though frequently cited, few have expanded upon the work of Offierski and MacNab. Ben-Galim et al., 2007 – Effects of THA on LBP  25 individuals with severe hip OA, received THA  No radiographic spine changes, but baseline LBP was 5.8 on VAS  Subjects had PT for ambulation, hip motion, but not for lumbar spine
    • 19. Ben-Galim et al., 2007 Pain - LBP Disability - LBP6 405 3043 202 1010 0 VAS ODI
    • 20. More recently… 10 Saito et al, Spine, May 2012Case series:4 patients with legpain and confirmedspinal stenosis and HipOA. 1 Fusion Helped by THA Helped by Fusion TKA ―I‘m sorry we fused your spine…‖ ―Conclusions. It is difficult to determine the origin of lower leg pain by spinal nerve block and hip joint block in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and hip osteoarthritis. We take this into consideration before surgery.‖
    • 21. So let‘s think about this connection…How can we evolve as hipsters?
    • 22. Lumbo-PelvicArthrokinematics What is normal lumbopelvic rhythm and how does this impact the hip-spine relationship?
    • 23. Normal Lumbopelvic Rhythm Lumbar spine and hips contribute to flexion in equal magnitudes.  Early flexion from the lumbar spine  Later flexion from the hip contribution  Extension is the reverse, with muscle activation occurring from a caudad to cephalad direction  Twisting motions are primarily from hip contribution Lee & Wang
    • 24. How about with LBP? We move slower, and with less magnitude. Hip:Spine Ratio (Shum et al, 4 studies)  Normal ratio: 0.50  LBP: 0.38-0.40 (reduced lumbar spine contribution)  Perhaps even less lumbar motion in those with +SLR Peak angular velocity also reduced for individuals with LBP
    • 25. Shum et al. Contribution Examined patients with and without LBP Looked at:  Simple sit-stand  Sock donning  Twisting  Picking up and object from a seated position Altered movement strategies may be a strategy to protect injured lumbar tissues  These changes are larger in those with neural tension signs
    • 26. Lumbopelvic Motion Many authors agree that more lumbar motion, earlier in the range, especially with rotation is apparent in patients with low back pain. (Burnett et al., 2004; Esola et al., 1996; Luomajoki et al., 2008; McClure et al., 1997; Roussel et al., 2009) Inconclusive overall.  Heterogeneous populations? Can sub-grouping help us?
    • 27. Low Back Pain Classification Systems:  McKenzie-based  Treatment-based classification  Movement System Impairment  Commonalities?  Movement  Symptoms reproduced matters  Hip motion matters
    • 28. Low Back Pain Classification Systems:  McKenzie-based  Treatment-based classification  Movement System Impairment  Commonalities?  Movement  Symptoms reproduced matters  Hip motion matters
    • 29. Treatment-based Classification Hip Influence:  Spinal Manipulation and Exercise Group  CPR:  < 16 days  No pain beyond knee  Hypomobile lumbar spine accessory motion  Low Fear-Avoidance Beliefs  Hip Motion (>35 degrees)  Also, we see something interesting in the Stability subgroup…  Important factors: Age, recurrent pain, SLR ROM, etc
    • 30. Arthrokinematics of a Subgroup Teyhen et al, 2007 in PTJ Examined subgroup indentified to have suspected spinal instability per CPR  Fluroscopic computer analysis Found segmental HYPO-mobility in this subgroup!
    • 31. Hip Hypomobility with LBP Tafazzoli and Lamontagne, 1996 With LBP:  Increased passive elastic moment on the hamstrings  Increased hip stiffness to oscillatory motions A rationale to treat the hips for patients presenting with primary LBP
    • 32. More Hip Trouble from LBP Reduced Hip Flexion in patients with LBP  Wong and Lee, 2004  3-dimensional analysis of functional motion in patients with LBP Increased ER compared to IR in patients with LBP  Cibulka et al, 1998  Examined over 100 patients with LBP
    • 33. Low Back Pain Classification Systems:  McKenzie-based  Treatment-based classification  Movement System Impairment  Commonalities?  Movement  Symptoms reproduced matters  Hip motion matters
    • 34. Movement System Impairment System People with LBP demonstrate earlier and greater lumbopelvic rotation during hip lateral rotation compared to people without LBP 5 groups (based on history, symptoms with movement and alignment)  lumbar extension rotation syndrome  lumbar extension syndrome  lumbar flexion rotation syndrome  lumbar flexion syndrome  lumbar rotation syndrome Important exam items related to the hip:  Hip Ext, Rot ROM, Hip abduction with lateral rotation in hook- lying, relative hip flexibility, hip motion in supine Van Dillen, Sahrmann, et al. 2003
    • 35. Hip Musculature and LBP If we‘re moving differently, we‘re using our muscles differently, right?
    • 36. Neuromuscular control of walkingwith chronic low-back pain Vogt et al., 2003, Manual Therapy  17 male subjects, hip ROM, surface EMG during gait Subjects with moderate low back pain had:  Decreased hip motion and stride time  Decreased hip extensor and lumbar spine extensor muscle activity  Persistent firing of the above noted muscle groups compared to controls Leinonen et al., 2000 – observed similar decreased gluteus maximus activation in patients with LBP
    • 37. Lumbopelvic Stabilization  Hungerford et al., 2003, Spine.  EMG analysis of 14 individuals with SIJ pain compared to age-matched controls  Reduced activation of  Internal oblique  Multifidus  Gluteus maximus
    • 38. Where We Stand As Hipsters Diagnostic Dilemma Patterns of Known Impairments of the hip in patients with low back pain Presence of hip-based factors in classification systems for clinicians to use when treating patients with low back pain. Practically Speaking: Education about the role of the hip in low back pain is something that people tend to teach in weekend courses and at conferences like this. It‘s not something much research has supported.
    • 39. Evidence for InterventionsWhat guidance do we have concerning the hip-spine connection? Image by mpascoe via Flickr
    • 40. Regional Interdependence Defined ―Seemingly unrelated impairments in a remote anatomical region may contribute to, or be associated with, the patient‘s primary complaint.‖ Wainner, Whitman, Cleland & Flynn. Regional Interdependence: A Musculoskeletal Examination Model Whose Time Has Come. JOSPT, 2007, (37)11.
    • 41. Spine & Extremity Regions Typical referred & radiating pain patterns Impairments - often seemingly unrelated
    • 42. Is this actually happening in clinical practice?
    • 43.

    • 46. Differential Dx for Hip vs. Spine Disease Brown, et al. Clin Orthop. Feb 2004:280-284 97 pts with LE pain referred to spine specialty clinic  Age - mean 67.5 ± 11.6 years History, physical exam, & diagnostic testing completed Imaging studies gold standard for diagnosis Findings:  19% - spinal disorders only  36% - hip & spine in conjunction  45% - hip only disorders  81% - had some hip involvement present Limitations  Diagnostic & test review with spectrum bias
    • 47. • Limp, groin pain, limited IR at hip – More likely to be present in a patient with a hip disorder• Positive femoral stretch test – More likely to have a spine disorder

    • 62. PurposeThe purpose of this prospective case series was two-fold.1. Describe the clinical decision making process involved in the management of patients with primary complaints of low back and hip pain.2. Provide an evidence-based rationale for directing treatment at the hip in a sub-group of patients with low back pain.
    • 63. Number of SubjectsSix subjects referred to physical therapy with low back pain whoalso demonstrated impairments at the hip were recruited toparticipate. (Note: Data collection is still in progress, currentlyhave 11 enrolled.)
    • 64. About the SubjectsInclusion Criteria:• 1. Adults referred to PT with a primary complaint of low back pain (LBP)• 2. Positive hip impairments as identified in the patient’s initial physical examination*Definition of positive hip impairment:• Positive special tests, decreased ROM, decreased muscle strength, reversed lumbo-pelvic rhythm, decreased mobility or pain with accessory motions, or findings consistent with the clinical presentation of hip osteoarthritis per the criteria established by Altman et al.
    • 65. About the SubjectsExclusion Criteria:• Any medical red flags• Spinal or femoral fractures, except for degenerative spondylolisthesis or spondylolisis• Upper motor neural compromise• Pregnancy• Lower motor neuron changes suggestive of nerve root irritation and/or compression (positive straight leg raise at <45º or diminished lower extremity strength, sensation, or reflexes• High fear-avoidance beliefs (>35 on the Fear Avoidance Belief Questionnaire Work [FABQW] subscale)• Previous history of spine or hip surgery• Inability to read and understand English
    • 66. Methods• Primary outcomes: • Secondary outcomes: • Oswestry Disability • Global Rating of Change Index, (ODI) (GROC) • Harris Hip Score (HHS) • Assessment of hip impairments. • Numerical Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) Initial Examination Week 4 Visit #2 (2-3 days after Initial Examination) Institutional Review Board approval was obtained from Bradley University for this study.

    • 69. InterventionsDay 1: Examination and Initial TreatmentIf hip impairment was noted, then treatment progressed in the following manner:• Manual Interventions focused on hip. (thrust/non-thrust)• Hip-specific therapeutic exercise• Reinforcing Home Exercise Program• Re-assess Day 2.
    • 70. InterventionsExercises provided to focus on• gluteus maximus,• hip abduction and external rotation• core stabilization progression.Neuromuscular re-education: • Movement re-education consisting of patient instruction, practice if abnormalities noted, i.e. sit to stand • Squatting and proper lifting mechanics • Proprioceptive core stability exercises
    • 71. InterventionsDay 2 – Week 4 Treatment• Treat per impairment-based approach or a pragmatic application of the Treatment-based classification approach.• HEP and TherEx continued to stress hip-focused interventions
    • 72. ResultsResults: At 4 weeks, the average improvement in ODI scores was 39%, and24% for the HHS. 66% of the patients experienced a significant decrease in theNPRS. 100% of patients for which data was collected experienced at least achange of 4 on the GROC (4-7), indicating at least moderate improvement.Avg. visits = 7.3 (3-10).

Short-term response of hip mobilizations andexercise in individuals with chronic low backpain: a case series • Subjects: • 8 Subjects with CLBP, Avg age 49, with ROM impairments • Intervention • Impairment-based manual therapy to Bilateral Hips • 3 Sessions over 1 week • Outcome • 5/8 (65%) reports >4 “Moderately Better” on the GROC • 24% reduction in ODI scores “This case series suggests that an impairment-based approach directed at the hip joints may lead toimprovements in pain, function, and disability in patients with CLBP. A neurophysiologic mechanism may be aplausible explanation regarding the clinical outcomes of this study. A larger, well-controlled trial is needed todetermine the potential effectiveness of this approach with patients with CLBP.” Burns, Mintken, Austin, Cleland. 2010 JMMT
    • 77. Conclusions• Significant improvements were observed in all primary outcome measures at 4 weeks.• Secondary outcome measures trended towards significant improvements.• This case series provides preliminary evidence that some patients with low back pain may receive a benefit from interventions directed at the hip.• Future studies should work to determine the factors that can predict patients that may realize this benefit.
