Hip

Radiological Examination of the Hip - Clinical Indications, Methods, and Interpretation:  A Clinical Commentary

R400.00

3 CEUs

    History and physical examination can be useful to classify young active individuals with non-arthritic intra-articular hip pathology as having impingement or instability. However, the specific type of deformity leading to symptoms may not be apparent from this evaluation. Several radiological indexes have been described in the literature for individuals with non-arthritic hip pathology.

    This course outlines the clinical indications, methods, and interpretation of hip radiological images as it relates to physical examination findings for those with non-arthritic hip pathology.

Hip Pain in the Sports Person:  Part 1 - Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Until recently, the hip joint was not thought to be a significant cause of problems in the athletic population. Now, thanks to MRI, and hip arthroscopy we have been able to learn more about some of the common underlying causes of groin pain. These will be covered in part one and two of this course.

    Part 3 covers the clinical assessment and treatment of labral tears, ligamentum teres tears, synovitis, chondropathy, surgical management, os acetabulare and lateral hip pain.

    This on-line course includes ample photos of exercises for hip rehabilitation.

Treatment of Piriformis Syndrome - Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    The purpose of this course is to introduce alternative treatment approach for piriformis syndrome using a hip muscle strengthening programme with movement re-education. Interventions for piriformis syndrome typically consist of stretching, dry needling and/or soft tissue massage to the piriformis muscle. However, this case study highlights an alternative view of the pathomechanics of piriformis syndrome and proposes an effective different treatment approach.
