Pediatric hip fractures are uncommon. 85 to 90 percent of pediatric hip fracture are a result of high-energy trauma. There is a paucity of literature describing best rehabilitation practices. Agility outcome measures, as well as observational and video gait analysis have not been fully investigated in the rehabilitation of pediatric hip fractures. The purpose of this case report was to investigate the use of agility outcome measures, as well as observational and video gait analysis in the rehabilitation of a fourteen year-old male motocross athlete with a hip fracture.
