General Guideline Principles for Overview of Hip
and Groin Disorders for workers compensation patients
The New York State workers compensation board has developed these guidelines to help physicians, podiatrists, and other healthcare professionals provide appropriate treatment for Overview of Hip and Groin Disorders.
These Workers Compensation Board guidelines are intended to assist healthcare professionals in making decisions regarding the appropriate level of care for their patients with ankle and foot disorders.
The guidelines are not a substitute for clinical judgement or professional experience. The ultimate decision regarding care must be made by the patient in consultation with his or her healthcare provider.
Overview of Hip and Groin Disorders
This recommendation covers the hip and groin conditions detailed in this section. Although not covered in detail here, other significant conditions, such as lumbar radiculopathy and lumbar spinal stenosis, which can manifest as posterior and lateral hip pain, should frequently be taken into consideration when making a diagnosis of hip pain and hip symptoms.
Inguinal and femoral hernias, atherosclerotic abnormalities, aneurysms, avulsion fractures (especially to the sartorius and rectus femoris), femoral mononeuritis, tumours, cancer, crystal arthropathies (such as gout, pseudogout, and hydroxyapatite), and infections, such as septic arthritis, are additional diagnostic factors.
