1. Topic-
The Thigh, Hip, Groin, and Pelvis
2. Content-

The thigh is continually exposed to traumatic injuries with contusions and strains occurring more frequently. Because of its bony, ligamentous, and muscular arrangements, the hip joint is considered by many to be the strongest articulation in the body. Though seldom injured, it is subject to muscular strains, contractures, bursitis, degenerative diseases, and stresses on the epiphyseal and apophyseal growth plates.
Those individuals that work with athletes must have a thorough knowledge of the anatomy of the pelvis, hip, groin, and thigh area to adequately evaluate and manage the common sports injuries associated with this area. He/she must also be aware of possible conditions that may occur if injuries are mishandled.
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
After studying - , the student will be able to:

1. Identify the bony anatomy of the thigh, hip, groin and pelvis.
2. Explain how to prevent injuries of the thigh, hip, groin, and pelvis.
3. Identify the muscles that control the movements of the thigh, hip, groin and pelvis.
4. Differentiate between the different grades of quadriceps contusions and explain how to treat each appropriately.
5. Explain appropriate emergency procedures for injuries that occur to the thigh, hip, groin, and pelvis.
4. Objectives-
- Acetabulum - Deep socket of the innominate bones that contains a fat pad and articulates with the head of the femur
- Apophysis - Bony outgrowth in which major muscles make their attachments
- Avascular necrosis - Death of an area or tissue due to a lack of blood supply
- Ectopic bone formation - Bone formation occurring in an abnormal place
- Hip pointer - Contusion to the iliac crest
- Innominate bones - Composition of three bones that ossify and fuse together early in life; these three bones are the ilium, ischium, and pubis.
- Myositis ossificans traumatica - Ectopic bone deposits in muscle that result from severe or repeated blows to the thigh
- Osteitis pubis - Chronic inflammatory condition caused by repetitive stress on the pubic symphysis and adjacent bony structures by the pull of the muscles in the area
- Pelvis - Bony ring formed by the two innominate bones, the sacrum and the coccyx
- Quadriceps contusion - Compression of the muscle against the femur as a result of severe impact to the thigh area
- Sacrum - Wedge-shaped "bone" composed of five fused vertebrae
5. Materials and Aids-
- PowerPoint Video
- Power Point Notes
- Review Worksheet
- Vocabulary Crossword
- Test
- Quiz
Anatomy Coloring Book
Thigh, Hip, Pelvis, and Groin Anatomy Notes
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-


B. Development-

1. PowerPoint (Video File)
2.Power Point Notes (On Moodle): These notes are intended that you take additional notes while listening to the lecture. There may be information that is not in these notes that I discuss during the lecture.
3. Thigh, Hip, Pelvis, and Groin Anatomy Notes (On Moodle) These notes are in addition to the PowerPoint notes. They outline the anatomy of the ankle.

C. Practice-

1. Anatomy Coloring Book: Students need to label and color the anatomical structures on the following pages. They only need to complete the numbers in parenthesis. Some structures maybe listed twice. Students will complete the entire book over the course of the semester. Answers can be found on the teacher's copy on the bottom of the page.

D. Independent Practice-

1. - Worksheet (On Moodle): This worksheet needs to be completed and submitted by the day before your test. It will serve to help you study for your test.
2. - Vocabulary Crossword (Hard Copy)

F. Checking for understanding-

- Quiz (On Moodle)
7. Evaluation-
- Test (On Moodle)
