Noble Test

 Noble Test

  • Noble Test is used for Iliotibial Band Syndrome

  • The patient is supine or side-lying with the injured side up.
  • Grasp just above the ankle and slowly bend the knee back and forth several times from 0-90° while palpating and applying firm pressure on the lateral epicondyle of the femur for crepitus with the thumb of the other hand.

  • Palpable snapping, rubbing or “squeaky hinge-like” crepitus or localized pain that increases with pressure at or above the epicondyle (often at 30° of flexion) indicates ITB syndrome.
