Description

Synopsis

A detailed examination of mechanisms of physical overload (morphology, movement, muscle) and impairments associated with anterior hip and groin pain, clinical diagnostic tests and management approaches. Includes joint related-pain & bony impingement (intra & extra-articular), soft tissue-related pain and nerve-related pain. Duration: Approx. 5 hours

Aims

This course aims to:
  • Clarify definitions of anterior hip and groin pain
  • Explore factors which may influence intra-articular hip joint loads
    • morphological variants (eg FAI, acetabular dysplasia, femoral version, capsulo-labral deficits)
    • adverse joint loading associated with kinematics and neuromotor function
    • the adequacy of joint protection mechanisms
  • Explore factors which may influence extra-articular loads in the anterior hip region
    • morphological variants (eg. AIIS/Subspine Impingement)
    • 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.
