In treating patients with limitations of hip motion, it is generally assumed that correction of bony morphology will provide the patient with the joint motion required to resume their activities. However, the positions of impingement and the specific excursions of joint motion required by each sport may vary. This systematic review aimed to define the envelope of active hip joint motion for participation in different sporting, recreational, and daily-living activities.
