The Athlete’s Hip can be a complicated issue for sports medicine professionals and athletes alike… Do you want to learn how to accurately and efficiently evaluate and treat this population?
Currently scheduling for 2018/19, see below for information regarding the course and learn if you want to host a course!
Hip pathology is an often under-appreciated and misunderstood problem for clinicians and athletes alike. As intra-articular and extra-articular hip pain has become more prominent, surgical procedures have increased exponentially, but examination and conservative management have unfortunately lagged behind.
This two-day course will delve into evidence-based evaluation, conservative management, and return to sport of athletes presenting with hip pain. Through lecture and lab sessions, you will learn how to evaluate and treat athletes presenting with intra-articular (femoroacetabular impingement syndrome, acetabular labral pathology, and ligamentum teres pathology) and extra-articular pathology (sacroiliac joint, extra-articular impingement, athletic pubalgia, piriformis syndrome, proximal hamstring pathology, and greater trochanteric pain syndrome).
By simplifying the evaluation and management of these conditions, at the conclusion of this course, clinician will be more confident in determining underlying pathology, appropriate management, need for surgical consult, and safe return to sport.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the complexity of pain and its impact on hip pathology
- Understand the impact of femoroacetabular biomechanics on hip and concomitant LE pathology and injury risk
- Be able to accurately assess for red flags (avascular necrosis, femoral stress fracture, and inguinal hernia) and referral from proximal regions
- Be able to accurately and efficiently evaluate extra-articular and intra-articular hip pathology
- Be able to screen for and determine the need for surgical intervention
- Understand pathology dependent and region dependent manual therapy and exercise progression for hip pathology
- Progression of LE exercise and end-stage rehabilitation principles
- Be able to determine psychosocial, functional testing, and pathology specific factors to determine safe and efficient return to sport
