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 and extra-articular pathology. This includes learning how to appropriately modify exercise prescription, determine load dosage, and manage the return to sport decision making process.
By simplifying the evaluation and management of these conditions, at the conclusion of this course, clinicians 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:
