Preserving the Active Hip…

New Advances in Hip Rehabilitation for Physiotherapists

EVERYTHING you’ve ever wanted to know about the Hip

Over the past decade, new research combined with improved imaging techniques and surgical interventions around the Hip have given the medical community a much better understanding of the biomechanics and pathologies affecting this very important joint. The hip joint is the critical link between the ambulating lower limbs and trunk. Its articular configuration allows almost unlimited directions of movement and it has more muscles attaching around it than any other single joint in the body. This very practical seminar take a VERY MODERN look at the biomechanics and muscle physiology of this amazing joint that will change forever your understanding of how the hip behaves in a manner that makes PERFECT sense.

“This is a Very Powerful Course that not only Compliments Everything you Already Know about the Hip but Explains so Much More about What you Don’t Know”

This highly acclaimed 2-day course explains in great detail the relationship between OA, Labral tears and F.A.I., and how muscle imbalance plays a critical role in all of these conditions. Afternoon “hands-on” workshops showcase recently developed differential diagnoses tests for hip pain and highlight scientifically supported rehabilitation strategies developed by David Lindsay over a 20 year period at the University of Calgary Sport Medicine Centre. Furthermore, the benefits and potential pitfalls of arthroscopic surgery will be discussed. Complimentary myofascial techniques will also be taught (NB course only). The course manual is very comprehensive, fully referenced yet easy to read. For additional course information including academic program and seminar schedule: www.hipphysio.com

 “I found your course to be possibly the most useful course I have ever taken in my many years as a physio – so thanks for that. I continue to use your exercises/techniques on basically a daily basis…”

The McKenzie Method of MDT is globally recognized as a leading treatment for spine and extremity disorders.  The MDT approach is a comprehensive biopsychosocial classification system that provides clinicians with the tools necessary to accurately determine the most appropriate and effective course of treatment for their patients, subsequently improving their patient outcomes.  The MDT assessment enables clinicians to triage patients accurately and efficiently.  MDT’s success as a comprehensive way to treat MSK disorders and injuries comes from clinicians being able to reliably classify problems into specific sub-groups, which have distinct and effective treatment approaches.
