Lateral Hip Pain | Improving diagnostic accuracy and outcomes with an evidence-based approach | Healthia Conference Workshop
October 14, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+10
Recent survey studies of physiotherapists in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia report that despite a growing body of high-quality evidence around assessment and management of gluteal tendinopathy, there is a lack of adequate translation of important information into clinical practice. There appears to be overreliance on 2-3 physical tests for diagnosis and underutilisation of a number of tests with good diagnostic utility. In many cases, selecting only 2-3 tests for gluteal tendinopathy/greater trochanteric pain syndrome may not be adequate for achieving a correct diagnosis. Almost 100% of physiotherapists reported using ‘load management and exercise’ to treat this condition, and yet the details of treatments provided suggests that some key features of highly successful programs are missing and unhelpful interventions are still commonly included.
This workshop will focus on providing the detail behind evidence-based diagnostic testing and load management and exercise strategies for gluteal tendinopathy. Participants will have the opportunity to master tests and exercises under supervision, to ensure optimal confidence and ease of transferring these skills into clinical practice. The workshop is suitable for clinicians who want to fast-track patient outcomes by avoiding misdiagnosis and refining management programs.
