Pre-arthritic hip disorders can cause pain, interfere with daily activities and exercise, and lead to the development of osteoarthritis in young adults. Surgical and conservative treatment options are being developed and studied, but it is currently unclear why some patients improve with a particular treatment plan while others do not. The goal of this research project is to develop a tool that predicts which combination of treatment options will be most effective for each individual patient.
The objective of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of an 8-week home-based targeted training intervention aiming at reducing FAI related pain, anterior pelvic tilt and improve hip joint function in a cohort of 40 patients (18 to 40 years), with acetabular retroversion and anterior pelvic tilt not eligible for surgery (Ganz osteotomy) from the hospital outpatient clinic.
Acetabular dysplasia often accompanies by acetabular bone hyperplasia and osteonecrosis of the femoral head. These pathological changes can alter the position of the center of the femoral head. Thus, measurement errors will be generated on the anteroposterior radiographs of the adult pelvis involving centre-edge angle, acetabular angle (Sharp angle), and acetabular head index, eventually resulting in the inaccurate diagnosis of acetabular dysplasia. Herein, the investigators describe the protocol to verify three novel X-ray indicators, including offshoring index (OFI), moving up index (MUI) and teardrop baseline offshoring index (TBOI) of the femoral head. All data will be expressed as relative ratios, as the investigators expect to make an accurate diagnosis through avoiding the generation of errors resulting from measurement angles.
