Hip Assessment & Treatment
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.
- What could be the reasons for the recent increase in hip complaints in the adult population?
- What are the common hip conditions which you encounter in your clinical practice?
- Is OA common in the population group, below the age of 50? What could be the causes of early OA in this group?
- Why is the examination of hip and groin considered, clinically challenging?
- What are the red flags associated with the hip and groin region & how do you identify them?
- What are the key subjective questions, relevant for the hip examination?
- How do you approach the objective examination of the adult hip?
- What are the different types of hip impingement syndromes?
- How common is FAI in the general population? Is it a pathological finding or an anatomical variance?
- What is the typical clinical presentation of a FAI?
- What is the common functional impairments observed in FAI on physical examination?
- What are common causes of Labral tears?
- How is the presentation of Labral tears, different from FAI?
- What are the objective tests which you use to identify Labral tears?

You have completed rehab and progressed to strength training for your injured runners. So, what is the next step to reduce injury risk and return safely to running?
Do you want the knowledge and skills to include runner-specific conditioning programme by introducing plyometrics, dynamic mobility and running drills?
Do you want to be able to confidently and effectively assess and retrain running gait to prevent injuries and improve efficiency?
This highly practical one day course will give you the skills and knowledge to integrate advanced training methods (plyometric, dynamic mobility and running drills) in the rehabilitation of runners and prescribe conditioning programmes with a deep understanding of how they affect pathology and performance. Plyometrics is a critical intervention for any patient who wishes to return to impact activities such as running and has shown to improve performance and reduce injury risk. These runner-specific conditioning programmes will enable your clients to become faster, stronger and more efficient runners.
- Understand risk factors implicated in the aetiology of overuse injuries in runner
- Practical application of conditioning strategies (Plyometrics, dynamic mobility, running drills) and progression in runners
- Learn to analyse running gait (treadmill-based) using video analysis and identify kinematic and kinetic variables, associated with injury
- Develop practical skills and clinical reasoning processes to apply running retraining interventions in the context of injury prevention and a special focus on step rate (cadence) manipulation, mirror re-training, auditory cues and mobility drills to improve running economy.
