Course Description

The Pelvis, Hip and Groin is a complex region of the body, with multiple pathologies co- existing and large forces being generated and absorbed through this region during almost all sports. Many local structures can generate pain in this region, and to further complicate matters, there are a number of structures that can refer pain into the area.

Perhaps nowhere else in the body is there currently a wider gap between the teachings of clinical practice and scientific fact. The Sporting Hip & Groin Course, attempts to blend the latest research, the opinion of experts in the field, and James’s extensive personal experience of current clinical concepts; to marry the art and science of management together in a clear and understandable way.

The original Sporting Hip & Groin course was first established in 2004, and has been delivered to over 2000 therapists in the UK, as well as internationally. The course covers a collection of published research articles and ideas brought together by the teachings of many leading clinicians. James has drawn on experiences with track and field over a nine year period, and four Olympic cycles, (Beijing 2008 & London 2012; Rio 2016; Tokyo 2020); through time in professional rugby (Both England and Saracens); consulting for some of the top clubs in the Premier League, Championship and Internationally for over 12 years; as well as running the Intensive Rehabilitation Unit (IRU) for all Olympic athletes through Sochi 2014; Rio 2016; PyeongChang 2018; and Tokyo 2020. His aim is to piece together all the research and place into context for clinical practice providing a framework for assessing and treating what is a challenging yet rewarding area - The Sporting Hip & Groin
