Patrick’s test or FABER test (for Flexion, ABduction and External Rotation) is performed to evaluate pathology of the hip joint or the sacroiliac joint.
The test is performed by having the tested leg flexed and the thigh abducted and externally rotated. If pain is elicited on the ipsilateral side anteriorly, it is suggestive of a hip joint disorder on the same side. If pain is elicited on the contralateral side posteriorly around the sacroiliac joint, it is suggestive of pain mediated by dysfunction in that joint.
Kai demonstrates the Faber Test, patrick or patrick’s sign also called figure four test which is a pain provocation test of the hip joint.
