Anterior Hip & Groin Pain
Live Online Workshop
May 29-30 2021

May 29 @ 8:00 am - May 30 @ 5:00 pm AEST


Anterior Hip & Groin Pain
Contemporary diagnostic & management strategies

This course includes 5 hours of online learning & 6 hours of live online workshop, delivered as 2 x 3 hour group zoom sessions


Do you find yourself using the same management approaches for patients with hip pain, regardless of their presentation?

Do you have a clear understanding of how morphology, loading patterns and muscle dysfunction may be driving anterior hip and groin pain?

Would you like to learn how to address these issues to optimise and FAST-TRACK YOUR OUTCOMES?

An exploration of the available anterior hip and groin pain literature reveals a minefield of inconsistent diagnostic labels and a high volume of imaging and surgical papers describing a myriad of pathologies which may or may not be associated with a patient’s presenting signs and symptoms. In recent years there have been some positive advances in defining clinical entities and diagnostic processes. Yet there is a persistent lack of clarity and evidence around best management. This may be related to undue focus on remediating a particular structural pathology or physical impairment, without adequate consideration of mechanisms or drivers of pain and load intolerance. Within the contemporary biopsychosocial model, health professionals acknowledge that patients may present with varying combinations of psychological and physical overload. While the psychosocial components of management are of high importance, these will not be addressed in detail within this forum, but much education is widely available on this topic. The primary focus will be on understanding and addressing mechanisms of physical overload and impairments associated with anterior hip and groin pain.

Online Theory

The substantial theoretical component of this course is presented in an online learning format for your flexibility and optimal learning experience. To keep everyone on track to have completed this content prior to the live workshop, you will receive an email series to guide you through this content. This will involve a time commitment of approximately 1 hour per week. Access to the online content will begin on April 19th 2021, from which time you will receive 6 weekly emails to guide your progress. You will also be free to go ahead or review any of the lessons over the following 3 month period.

• 5 hours of PowerPoint lectures with printable notes.
• Learn anywhere, at your own pace, in your own time.
• Benefit from a guided reminder series of emails to ensure you complete the content
• Rewind and revise as many times as you like.
• Self-assessment quiz.
• 3 months of unlimited access to online learning content.

The online component aims to:

•Clarify definitions of anterior hip and groin pain
• Explore factors which may influence intra-articular hip joint loads
1. morphological variants (eg FAI, acetabular dysplasia, femoral version, capsulo-labral deficits)
2. adverse joint loading associated with kinematics and neuromotor function
3. the adequacy of joint protection mechanisms
• Explore factors which may influence extra-articular loads in the anterior hip region
1. morphological variants (eg. AIIS/Subspine Impingement)
2. adverse soft tissue loading associated with kinematics and neuromotor function (focus on hip flexors)
• Provide an overview of key load management and therapeutic exercise strategies for anterior hip pain, particular to the patient presentation and associated difficulties with mechanical load transfer.
• Provide an update on groin pain clinical entities and where the literature sits with regard to prevention and management.

Live Online Workshop

The live online workshop will be provided as 2 x 3 hour live zoom sessions. The shorter sessions allow for greater flexibility and avoid participant fatigue with prolonged online course attendance. Due to time-zone differences, the workshops will be repeated at either end of the day on both Saturday and Sunday.

There will be 2 sessions each day, repeating the same content, so you will have an opportunity to choose one session on each day that best suits you:
Option 1: 9am – 12 midday AEST
Option 2: 5 – 8pm AEST

To convert these dates & times to your local time, simply convert from Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) using a time converter like this one:

Day 1 – 29th May: Assessment of Anterior Hip & Groin Pain


• Recognising different conditions through patient presentation, interview and physical tests
• Demonstration of formal diagnostic tests for anterior hip and groin pain, and anterior hip instability
• Telehealth assessments of the hip & groin, which we will all do together
• Interactive case studies to walk through differential diagnoses of a number of presentations
• Time for questions

Day 2 – 30th May: Management of Anterior Hip & Groin Pain


• Tips regarding manual therapy and when it is or is not appropriate
• Demonstration of manual techniques and self-mobilisation
• Recognising situations of anterior hip and groin overload
• Load management strategies for anterior hip and groin pain
• Exercise techniques and strategies for managing anterior hip and groin pain, with focus on:
– modifying exercise technique for specific pathological and morphological presentations, to avoid aggravation and optimise outcomes
– specific hip flexor and adductor exercise techniques
– specific exercises for nerve related anterior hip and groin pain
• Interactive case study discussions
• Time for questions

These sessions will be recorded and you will be provided with access to these for a further 6 weeks after the live session. Even if you are unable to attend the live event, you will be provided with access to these videos for review of the content.

If you have any questions about this event, just contact me here.

Please note, no refunds will be available after access to the online learning content has commenced on 19th April, 2021.
