When I ask health professionals what their greatest challenges are in the hip and pelvic region, the most common response is differential diagnosis and management of buttock pain.

Buttock Pain Management Courses

Online Course: Lateral Hip & Buttock Pain

Lateral hip and buttock pain may present the physiotherapist or clinician with a number of diagnostic and management challenges. The area is rich in sources of local nociception and remote referral. Many patients present with more than one source and persistent lateral hip or buttock pain. Often the biggest challenge is knowing where to start. In this course, you will find a simple system that steps systematically through the various joint-related, soft tissue-related and nerve-related conditions associated with lateral hip and buttock pain. Information on mechanisms assists the physiotherapist to gain a deeper understanding of a condition, which underpins the clinical reasoning for selection of clinical diagnostic tests and management approaches, including specific load management advice and exercise strategies. This online course provides 6 hours of evidence-based, clinically relevant information to build your knowledge and skills, so you can confidently greet and treat the next patient that presents for lateral hip or buttock pain management.
