inspect by me bending at the level of the hips  – all 4 sides – 
 scars, swelling, skin changes – deformity ( leg lngth discrepancy/ pelvic tilt )  ) and wasting – 
  see for valgus varus deformity and foot arches – 
  
Trendalenburg test – ( done from front of patient – hands at ASIC ) 
the side of raised leg – ASIC should rise that side – 
        if falls – glutial weakness, hip pain or structural abnormality
