Hip and pelvic injuries are relatively rare in the young athlete. Contusions and musculotendinous sprains are the most common injuries about the hip and pelvis. Apophyseal avulsion fractures and stress fractures are the most frequently encountered skeletal injuries. Each of these entities can be successfully treated with guided physical therapy following conservative management with rest, anti-inflammatory medications, and ice massage until the patient is pain free. Epiphyseal, diaphyseal, or pathologic fractures are rare entities that are secondary to violent trauma.

For many years, static standing x-ray views of the lumbar spine and pelvis have been evaluated to identify variations in the positional attitude of the osseous segments and to relate such findings with possible causes of low back pain and disability. This study of 110 cases of acute low back pain identified the frequency of occurrence of intervertebral disc-space wedging, the level where it most frequently occurred and the associated alterations in the attitude of the pelvis and adjacent vertebral segments.

BACKGROUND: Symptoms arising from primary bone sarcoma of the pelvic girdle are often insidious in onset and nonspecific in nature. To make the subtle initial signs and symptoms of these tumors more apparent to clinicians, we studied a cohort of patients who had a primary bone sarcoma of the pelvic girdle. Our purpose was to describe the initial clinical findings and to evaluate the duration, frequency, and implications of delays in the treatment of these tumors. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the data on sixty-eight patients who had a primary bone sarcoma of the pelvic girdle.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the reliability of a radiographic measurement procedure that uses a computer and sonic digitizer to determine projected spinal displacements from an ideal normal position. DESIGN: A blind, repeated-measure design was used. Anteroposterior lumbopelvic radiographs were presented to each of 3 examiners in random order. Each film was digitized, and the films were randomized for a second run. SETTING: Private, primary-care chiropractic clinic.

OBJECTIVE: To describe the chiropractic care of a patient with a pelvic ring fracture and concomitant subluxations of multiple segments of the spinal column. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 23-year-old male, after falling down a flight of stairs, was initially hospitalized for fractures of the pelvis. Five weeks posthospitalization, the patient initiated chiropractic care with complaints of severe low back pain with lower extremity involvement. He also complained of neck pain and occipital headache.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study is to explore associations between axial (y-axis) rotation of the pelvis and pelvic radiographic measurements. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive film statistics of an incrementally rotated pelvis and linear regression analysis were performed. METHODS: A phantom pelvic model was incrementally imaged (1 degrees increments) at 40-in source-to-image distance through 10 degrees of axial rotation. Chiropractic line drawing analysis was performed. The chiropractic examiner was blinded to the degree of rotation during the film analysis.
