Extra-Articular Pelvic and Hip Labrum Injury: Differential Diagnosis and Integrative Management-HLI
February 6, 2016 @ 7:30 am - February 7, 2016 @ 3:30 pm
Ginger will be teaching her HLI course at Embody Physiotherapy and Wellness in Pennsylvania! We are excited to bring this course to Embody and look forward to a good turnout.
Acetabular labral tears are reported to be a major cause of hip dysfunction in young patients and a primary precursor to hip osteoarthritis. New technology is helping with improved identification of tears; diagnosis time of injury to diagnosis is still on average 2.5 years, making long-term prognosis for hip preservation poor.
The risks of surgery, coupled with the lack of long term follow up studies for arthroscopic procedures, makes conservative therapy a valuable tool. This course presents a holistic methodology for the recommended trials of conservative therapy covered in current literature.
The CE will give special attention to identification of new diagnoses that plague the hip, high-risk populations, musculoskeletal presentation, and recruitment patterns for prevention of long-range debility, intra-articular damage, premature joint degeneration, and loss of quality of life. Secondary and differential diagnoses of the hip and pelvis will be addressed in order to help the clinician understand how conventional and integrative therapies can work together to provide better outcomes.
Current surgical methods will also be addressed in this CE in order to provide the clinician with a well-rounded background in the management of labral and related secondary lesions. In a case study framework, this CE will provide you with the opportunity to analyze the evaluation and intervention of the most current modalities.
