Previous researchers have reported on the use of augmented home exercise programs with potential carry-over effects from manual therapy treatment. While there is no direct evidence to support augmented manual therapy, tangential evidence demonstrates that specific, supervised, and adherent exercises result in improved outcomes. The purpose of this case report is to describe an augmented home program simulating the manual techniques provided by the therapist. A 37-year-old female presented with symptoms and signs consistent with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Grade III lateral and inferior femoral glides decreased reported pain from 5/10 to 0/10. Given the immediate response to hip mobilizations, the patient was prescribed standing lateral glides and supine inferior glides of the hip with the use of a belt. During this time, the patient's Lower Extremity Functional Scale score improved from 74 to 78 and she reported increased ability to self-manage her symptoms. The immediate report of decreased pain helped determine the specific home program selected for this individual patient. This case highlights the importance of a specific augmented home exercise program unique to the individual patient resulting in self-management of pain associated with FAI.
