Lumbo-pelvic-hip complex pain in a competitive basketball player: a case study.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Establishing the cause of lumbo-pelvic-hip complex pain is a challenge for many clinicians. This case report describes the mechanism of injury, diagnostic process, surgical management, and rehabilitation of a female high school basketball athlete who sustained an injury when falling on her right side. Diagnostics included clinical examination, radiography of the spine and hip joint, magnetic resonance imaging arthrogram, 3-dimensional computed tomography scan, and computed tomography of the hip joint. A systematic multidisciplinary clinical approach resulted in the patient's return to previous functional levels.
