Case Presentation: Page 1 of 6

Patient presented with pain in her left low back, left gluteal region and left anterior thigh radiating to the knee. She also stated that she cannot cross her left leg over her right into a “figure 4” but has no problem doing so on the right side. She needs to manually pull her left leg over her right thigh and it cannot be brought close to her pelvis as the other side.


This patient has not had any history of low back, gluteal or leg pain. She is a breast cancer survivor just 18 months out of treatment which included surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. She is of normal weight for her height of 5’1”. She does not exercise. Except for her pain, she “feels good”.


Question: What examination procedures would you perform on this patient?
