Ober’s Test

To do:

The client is in a sidelying position and close to the edge of the table on the unaffected leg, the unaffected leg should be in a hip and knee flexed position for stability on the table.

The therapist should be standing behind the client.

The therapist stabilizes the client’s pelvis with one hand and with the other hand, grasps the medial aspect of the client’s affected knee, and passively hyperabducts and extends the hip. The therapist should allow the leg to lower without rotating.

Positive sign:

The affected leg stays abducted and doesn’t lower
