Ginger has written a new course for Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute focusing on Hip Labrum Injury. The course will run June 28-29, 2014 in Akron Ohio at Summa Health Center.
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.
Upon completion of this continuing education seminar, participants will be able to:
1. Identify methods for differential diagnosis of the hip and the evidence-based risk factors for intra-articular hip injury.
2. Describe the morphological classification system of labral tears.
3. Practice the provocative tests used in diagnosis of hip joint injury.
4. Discuss current evidence based medical management, including surgical intervention, for labral tears and related injuries of the hip in order to identify critical factors for intervention.
5. In a case study format, critically analyze the biopsychosocial model of assessment and its indications and contraindications in order to prescribe subacute through chronic phase functional intervention and activity modification for hip joint preservation and rehabilitation in a multi-disciplinary team approach.
6. Identify conventional and integrative methods, including but not limited to yoga, Pilates, muscle energy technique, and manual therapies, for hip and related pelvic intervention.
