Hip (Level 2) Masterclass

This one day workshop is designed for all therapists who work with physically active patients with anterior hip and groin pain. The aim of the course is to provide a clear, honest and evidence-based look, combined with more than 25 years of joint clinical experience at what does and does not work in the assessment and management of the active hip patient. A key goal would be for you to leave with things that both simplify the hip for you and help differential diagnoses what is going on, both articular and extra-articular pathologies of the hip.

  10. What is the typical clinical presentation of a FAI?
  11. What is the common functional impairments observed in FAI on physical examination?
  12. What are common causes of Labral tears?
