Craig’s Test

Rate this video

Craig’s Test is a test for femoral anteversion.

Have your client prone on the table with their knee flexed to 90 degrees. Palpate the greater trochanter, then rotate your client’s femur through full ranges of internal and external rotation and note the angle at which the greater trochanter is most lateral. Ideally, this should be between 8 and 15 degrees of internal rotation.

In the video, I show how to work with the muscle attachments at the greater trochanter while rotating the femur. This should not be done if pain is felt around the greater trochanter, as the pain may be from trochanteric bursitis. Massaging this area may aggravate bursitis.
