Course Description

This 2 day course is designed for therapists who work with physically active patients with anterior hip and groin pain. The aim of the course is to provide a clear, honest and evidence based look, combined with more than 25 years of joint clinical experience at what does and does not work in the assessment and management of the active hip patient. A key goal is for the participant to leave with tools that both simplify the hip and help differential diagnoses for both articular and extra-articular pathologies of the hip.  

This hands on course will consider the evidence and how this has been integrated into practice. The active treatment section will look at manual techniques in the management of the adult hip patient and comprehensive rehabilitation of articular and extra-articular pathologies. It is designed to be highly practical and full of clinical tips that you can put into practice immediately.


Learning Outcomes:

  1. Overview of the complex interaction of the groin and the hip joint including femoro-acetabular impingement, labral lesions, extra-articular pathologies and tendinopathy.

  2. Integration of the theory, current evidence and treatment tools with case studies

  3. Overview of Rehab principles following Hip Arthroscopy and Conservative Management of Articular and Extra-articular Pathologies

  4. Practical application of manual therapy in the management of hip and groin pain

  5. Understanding of the biomechanical and developmental factors leading to symptomatic FAI and clinical insights on managing complex presentation

  6. A detailed and a systematic physical examination will be covered using a novel and evidence based tool (The layering concept) for the assessment of the adult hip patient and a solid understanding of differential diagnosis
