Evaluation and Management of Common Hip Disorders
Joshua R. S. Browning, DC, DIANM
6 hours of Diagnosis
Overview: The attendee will learn current evidence-based orthopedic testing strategies to accurately diagnose many of the most commonly presenting hip and hip-related conditions seen in the chiropractic setting. The attendee will learn current evidence-based treatment strategies. Topics discussed include anatomy of the hip, biomechanics of the hip and research terminology and utilization. Conditions including hip abductor weakness, greater trochanteric pain syndrome, femoroacetabular impingement, acetabular labral tear, meralgia paresthetica, and tendinopathy, strain and sprain will be discussed. Video demonstrations are provided..
Objectives: The attendee will be provided with a basic review of research, statistics, anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, and presented with up-to-date evaluation and management techniques concerning shoulder-related conditions. At the end of the presentation, the attendee should have an in-depth understanding of current research regarding the evaluation and management of the hip and its contributing structures. The attendee should be able to effectively assess hip complaints and triage patients, resulting in the development of an evidence-based trial period of care.
