About the event
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 optimise 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. This may be related to undue focus on remediating a particular structural pathology or physical impairment, without adequate consideration of mechanisms or drivers of pain and load intolerance. Within the contemporary biopsychosocial model, health professionals acknowledge that patients may present with varying combinations of psychological and physical overload. While the psychosocial components of management are of high importance, these will not be addressed in detail within this forum, but much education is widely available on this topic. The primary focus will be on understanding and addressing mechanisms of physical overload and impairments associated with anterior hip and groin pain.
Do you have a list of possible diagnoses that jump to mind when someone presents with lateral hip or buttock pain?
Do you consider posterior joint stability, extra-articular impingements of the lesser or greater trochanter, or peripheral nerve entrapments?
What is your strategy for working through the differential diagnoses?
Which markers from your patient interview and physical examination determine your pathway towards each particular diagnosis?
Once you have determined the most likely diagnosis, are you also able to identify and develop a plan to address the most potent drivers for each individual’s presentation?
Would you like to Fast Track your lateral hip and buttock Rehab?
Lateral hip and particularly buttock pain can often present a diagnostic dilemma. The lumbar spine and sacroiliac joints may refer into these regions; intra-articular hip pathologies may be accompanied by lateral hip &/or buttock pain; local soft tissues & neural structures may be primary sources of nociception. The first step is determining the most likely contributors to the patient’s pain presentation.
Developing an optimal management program with positive effects past the short term, will also require an evaluation of physical & psychological drivers. Intrinsic & extrinsic factors should be considered within the overall context of workload. While non-modifiable factors (e.g., bony morphology) are by nature unable to be modified, awareness of these factors can be integral to providing advice and interventions (active or passive) that ‘do no harm’ and development of strategies that allow maximal function with minimisation of adverse effects.
