The Hip Complex - An Advanced Evidence Based Evaluation and Treatment

Why take this Continuing Education Course?

This two day advanced level course is designed to provide the medical professional with the information necessary to develop a comprehensive evaluation and treatment program for the Hip Joint. Anatomy of the hip, pelvis and lumbar spine region will be covered. In depth analysis of the of biomechanics of the hip joint, and even more importantly, the evidence supporting differential diagnosis of the hip joint is presented as the basis for evaluation. The participants, through extensive lab exercises, will be led through the development of treatment plans by applying joint mobilization, and muscle re-education techniques. Course instruction will also focus on developing a working knowledge of the theory behind joint mobilization techniques combined with supporting evidence from the current literature. The practical application labs will be supplemented by lecture and group discussions. Efficacy of the various techniques will also be discussed in order to allow the participant to determine the best evidence based treatments for their clients. Specific types of clients discussed will include those with hip osteoarthritis, femoral neck fractures, avascular necrosis, impingement, labral tear, athletic pubalgia, sports related chronic groin pain, snapping hip, and exertional related pain in endurance athletes. A comprehensive course manual with illustrations and step-by-step instructions will assist the clinician in immediately and confidently applying these skills to their clinical setting.

This course is designed to enhance the clinician’s critical thinking by providing the latest evidence to support their practice. The intent of the course is to critically examine the current literature as it applies to hip joint differential diagnosis, examination, intervention, and post-operative strategies. The participant will clearly understand the strengths and weaknesses of the current literature as it relates to hip joint pathology.
