Gain a deeper understanding of tendinopathies of the hip and pelvis, and more effective clinical management
Do you find that some patient's hip and pelvic tendinopathies settle relatively quickly, while others can be very persistent or recurrent? Often this is due to inadequate or incomplete load management strategies (load management in not just doing less), lack of a targeted exercise program or inclusion of exercises that might be provocative for specific hip and pelvic tendinopathies. This hip and pelvic tendinopathy course helps you to understand these conditions at a deep level, allowing you to more effectively provide specific load management advice and exercise therapy for the individual in front of you.
Tendinopathies of the hip and pelvis represent a large burden on both the sporting and ageing populations. Growing evidence is shaping contemporary conservative management of tendinopathy.
The information presented is based on both an emerging evidence base derived from scientific studies on structure and mechanobiological mechanisms, risk factors, impairments and the available information on effects of intervention, and over 30 years of clinical experience.

This hip and pelvic tendinopathy course aims to
- Bring together the available information on tendinopathies of the hip and pelvis with a particular focus on pathoaetiological mechanisms.
- Provide a clinical interpretation of the scientific data with direction and practical ideas for management.
- Highlight areas where research is deficient for those interested in adding to our evidence base for contemporary clinical practice in this field.
- Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
- Describe basic tendon structure, and biological mechanisms occurring in both a homeostatic state and in a pathological tendon.
- Describe anatomical relationships, impairments, and postural and loading habits that may predispose to the development of each of the tendinopathies addressed – Gluteal tendinopathy, proximal hamstring tendinopathy, iliopsoas tendinopathy & adductor tendinopathy.
- Enhance their ability to develop maximally effective intervention programmes including both load management and exercise prescription.
