Moderator:  Tim Tyler, PT, MS, ATC

Overview

This Session will provide detailed description of the anatomy and pathology of the hip joint.  It will include an overview of hip physical examination testing, including how to rule out other sources of pain. The clinician will be exposed to manual therapy, stretching, and strengthening techniques as they apply to the hip joint. Detailed information regarding difficult hip cases will be provided in order for the clinician to make informed decisions on which interventions are most clinically applicable. 

Session Objectives

  • Discuss the definitions of diagnostic accuracy when reviewing the efficacy of specific examination and treatment approaches in relation to the hip joint.
  • Identify how to enhance examination skills by performing differential diagnostic tests to determine the underlying mechanisms of hip dysfunction and pain, poor alignment, hip intra-articular pathology, hip intra-articular pathology, labral tears, muscle dysfunction and gluteal tendinopathy.
  • Describe the steps to perform appropriate manual therapy techniques for the hip joint dysfunction.
  • Discuss evidence based rehabilitation guidelines for specific post-operative procedures.

The Integration of Hip with Spine Rehabilitation

Moderator: Mitch Rauh, PT, PhD, MPH, FACSM

OVERVIEW
This session will review biomechanical principles of lower half musculoskeletal dysfunction as they relate to common patterns of the femur, pelvis and lumbar spine. Describe how musculoskeletal dysfunction relates to kinetic chain asymmetry and patterns of compensatory activity. Apply examination and assessment skills to neuromuscular dysfunction and postural asymmetries that affect stability and function of the lower extremity.  Restore synchronous activity across the lumbo-pelvic-femoral complex and improve neuromuscular motor control of the muscles that stabilize these joints.

OBJECTIVES
• Review current trends in the lumbo-pelvic-femoral complex
• Describe the steps to perform appropriate manual therapy techniques for the lumbo-pelvic-femoral joint dysfunction.
• Review current trends with management of hypomobility of the spine and its relationship to the femur
• Review current trends with management of hypermobility of the spine and its relationship to the femur
