Pelvic Floor and Hip Complex



The pelvic floor shares fascia and common nerve roots with the hip rotator and stabilizer muscles. Often the pelvic floor may be implicated during injury and rehabilitation of common hip impairments. This course will explore the role of the pelvic floor in iliotibial (IT) band friction syndrome, proximal hamstring tendinopathy, and femoral acetabular impingement (FAI). Additionally, learn evidence informed differential diagnosis and rehabilitation strategies for patients with these common hip impairments.
