Are you frustrated with hip pain patients, who fail to progress, keep coming back with recurring problems?
Are you up to date on the current management of FAI and Labral pathology?
Want a clear understanding on how best to approach extra-articular hip conditions such as adductor & iliopsoas related groin pain?
The hip and groin area is often viewed as a “black box” because of the complex anatomy and overlapping pain referral patterns. Whether it is the week-end warrior, yoga enthusiast or the competing triathlete, accurate diagnosis and management of hip and groin pain can be challenging.
This one-day course will help you break down common patterns seen in clinic and to treat the primary causes of hip dysfunction. Successful rehabilitation of the painful hip requires a sound understanding of the intrinsic factors that influence how the hip transfers load and also the biomechanical stress from the lower limb, SIJ and the lumbar spine.
Giving isolated strengthening and stretching exercises often do not directly relate to how the hip and groin is used in daily and sporting activities. A combination of strength, movement patterns and muscle recruitment strategies will have a favourable influence on optimal load transfer and dynamic stability of the hip and groin complex. Effective clinical management of extra-articular pathologies (adductor & hip flexor) and tendinopathies of the hip and pelvis will also be addressed in the practical section of the course.
This one day workshop is designed for all therapists who work with physically active patients with anterior hip and groin pain. The aim of the course is to provide a clear, honest and evidence based approach, combined with more than 25 years of joint clinical experience at what does and does not work in the conservative management of the active hip patient.
The active treatment section will look at evidence based rehab strategies in the conservative management of the hip patient and develop effective programmes for tendinopathies of the hip and pelvis. It is designed to be highly practical and full of clinical tips that you can put into practice immediately.
What will you gain by attending the course?
Current conservative management of hip pain including hip impingement syndromes and extra-articular pathologies (Adductor & Hip Flexor Related Groin Pain)
Evidence based re-training of deep hip stabilisers, movement re-training and progression to strength based training and functional tasks.
Practical skills involved in the assessment and management of tendinopathies of the hip and pelvis (Gluteus Medius and Proximal Hamstring)
Practical application of rehab exercises including progression of hip stabilisation exercises, dynamic mobility and strength and conditioning for the hip patient.
Integration of the theory, current evidence and treatment tools with case studies
