• LECTURE SYMPOSIUMUNDERSTANDING DEFINITIONS, PATHOLOGY & MECHANISMS: The basis for contemporary diagnosis & management 

    Saturday, September 22, 2018, 9:00am - 4:30pm; The Centre for Hip Health & Mobility, 2635 Laurel Street  | $350.00 

    >Do you find yourself using the same management approaches for patients with hip pain, regardless of their presentation?

    >Do you have a clear understanding of how morphology, loading patterns and muscle dysfunction may be driving anterior hip and groin pain?

    >Would you like to learn how to address these issues to optimize and FAST-TRACK YOUR OUTCOMES?

    An exploration of the available anterior hip and groin pain literature reveals a minefield of inconsistent diagnostic labels and a high volume of imaging and surgical papers describing a myriad of pathologies which may or may not be associated with a patient’s presenting signs and symptoms. In recent years there have been some positive advances in defining clinical entities and diagnostic processes. Yet there is a persistent lack of clarity and evidence around best management. Join Dr. Alison Grimaldi to delve into understanding and addressing mechanisms of physical overload through the anterior hip and groin. DOWNLOAD COURSE INFO.


    Saturday, September 22, 2018, 9:00am - 4:30pm & Sunday, September 23, 2018, 9:00am - 4:30pm; The Centre for Hip Health and Mobility | $660.00 (Includes Saturday lecture symposium and full day practical workshop on Sunday)

    This workshop is a practical application of the principles discussed in the Anterior Hip & Groin Pain lecture series. Now armed with a clear understanding of how morphology, loading patterns and muscle dysfunction may be driving anterior hip and groin pain, participants will be guided through a clinical reasoning model to help determine the key drivers and optimal management approach for each individual. DOWNLOAD COURSE INFO.

*Please note that there are just 30 spots available for the Masterclass day; to be eligible for one of these spots you must also register for the Symposium. These events are for physiotherapists only.
