An illustration of Patrick's test
|Purpose||evaluate hip joint|
The test is performed by having the tested leg flexed and the thigh abducted and externally rotated. If pain is elicited on the ipsilateral side anteriorly, it is suggestive of a hip joint disorder on the same side. If pain is elicited on the contralateral side posteriorly around the sacroiliac joint, it is suggestive of pain mediated by dysfunction in that joint.
Patrick's test is named after the American neurologist Hugh Talbot Patrick.
