Anterior Hip & Groin Pain | Live Online Workshop
May 29 - May 30$335
Do you find yourself using the same management approaches for patients with hip pain, regardless of their presentation?
Are you lacking a clear understanding of how morphology, loading patterns and muscle dysfunction drive anterior hip and groin pain?
Do you want to learn how to address these issues to optimise and FAST-TRACK YOUR OUTCOMES?
• Access content from 19th April 2021
• 6 x weekly emails to guide your progress
• Culminating in 2 x 3-hour live zoom sessions
• Learn anywhere, at your own pace, in your own time
• Self-assessment quiz to evaluate your progress
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.
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:
