Hip Tips - Ely's Test

Ely's Test Explained - Stuart Hinds

 

Ely’s test is commonly used to assess tightness in the rectus femoris. In some purist circles it has become popular in recent years to discount the value of this test, based on the findings of some pretty minor research. 

In my experience, the Ely's Test remains a useful tool and continues to be used widely and effectively by therapists, within elite sports and athletics.

 

Stuart Hinds is one of Australia's leading NAT soft tissue therapists. He regularly lectures on remedial soft tissue techniques at Victoria University (Melbourne Australia), and is internationally recognized for his work with the Australian Olympic Teams (Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012). In 2015 Stuart was the recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the AAMT.
