Advances in biomechanical research, MRI, and arthroscopy have led to a better understanding of hip pathologies. Have your differential diagnoses and rehabilitation skills kept pace?
The hip joint is truly one of the most amazing joints in the body. It’s the critical link between the walking lower limbs and the trunk. Its joint configuration allows almost unlimited directions of movement and there are more muscles attached around this joint than any other joint in the body.
This very practical two-day course provides a very modern overview of the structure of the hip, including the crucial role of walking and muscle coordination in maintaining normal function of the hip joint.
In this course we will demystify all possible differential diagnoses for anterior hip pain. We will practice the newly developed clinical tests and put into practice a progressive and conservative rehabilitation program based on evidence developed over a 20-year period by David Lindsay and his medical colleagues at the University of Calgary Sport Medicine Centre. In addition, Geoff Cuskelly will present a wide range of manual and myofascial therapy techniques specific to the hip.
Gain a clear understanding of the anatomy of the hip, including how that anatomy relates to function, in a way that you will remember forever
Have a very modern eye on the biomechanics and muscle physiology of the hip that will change your perception of hip behaviour in a way that is perfect
Understand hip muscle balance and its importance
Easily recognize gait compensation that create muscle imbalances and contribute to anterior hip pain
Know the role of the acetabular labrum in hip function. Understand what acetabulo-femoral conflict is and how it can affect joint and tissue structures
Know the causes, clinical patterns, and treatment options for labrum injuries
Understand why hip arthritis is characteristic of the disease
Know when to consider arthroscopic surgery. What are the indications and implications – and just as importantly, what are the potential pitfalls?
Develop a clinical reasoning process and assessment and palpation techniques that will help you make a differential diagnosis of pre-hip pain
Know all of the appropriate intervention strategies for each hip pathology including manual techniques and a guided progressive hip rehabilitation program (evidence-based with an 80% clinical success rate)
