Abstract:
The purpose of this case report is to describe how exercises designed to promote neuromuscular control and strength of the hip musculature in conjunction with other physical therapy interventions were used to treat a runner with bilateral medial tibial pain. The evaluation and treatment of a patient with a 3- month history of bilateral shin pain are described as an example of when proximal control could be affecting distal components of the kinetic chain. This case report demonstrates that a patient was able to return to participation in running competition without pain following a hip stabilization exercise program.
