Yeoman's test

Yeoman's test in a physical exam is performed to determine if a person has sacroiliitis. With the subject prone, the test is performed by rotating the ilium with one hand and extending the hip while the knee is extended. Pain over the ipsilateral posterior sacroiliac joint area is indicative of sacroiliitis.
