Rehab Learning Center presents an online physical therapy hip evaluation and treatment course.

Several recent sources have attempted to define various aspects of groin pain in both athletic and non-athletic populations. The ambiguity relative to hip joint related pain definition is of increasing concern with findings suggesting rising prevalence of this pathology in athletes, as well as an increasing implementation of surgery in athletes and non-athletes despite a lack of clearly defined surgical indications in some hip pathologies.

Imprecise hip joint related pathology definition and diagnosis has been acknowledged by several sources attempting to address the indistinctness, namely for ligamentum teres tear, labral tear and femoroacetabular impingement syndrome (FAIS). Proper diagnosis is essential due to rising prevalence of hip related pathology in athletes, an increasing implementation of surgery in athletes and non-athletes as well as the suggestion of a pathology continuum risking of developing hip OA (soccer, handball, track and field, and hockey).

In this course you will learn a detailed, systematic, evidence-based examination process to differentially diagnose non-arthritic hip pathology. You will learn evidence-based methods of screening other potential regions of pain generation (e.g. lumbar spine), as well as screening for serious pathology. You will also learn various assessment methods to differentially diagnose intra- from extra-articular pathology; as well as specific pathology differentiation.

In this course you will also learn about the most common hip arthroscopy surgical procedures and general post-operative considerations. The rehabilitation aspects of this course detail progression principles, monitoring of patient response to an intervention (biologically, psychologically and socially). Additionally, this course covers multiple primary exercises (e.g. squat, deadlift, lunge, bridges) and progressions/regressions for the pathologies discussed in the examination.

This is the most comprehensive, progressive hip examination and intervention course available; whether it is in-person or online. This course utilizes a great deal of demonstration of the various assessments and movements, including activity and sport-related movements. The clinical utility of these assessments and exercises is also presented in a manner that is easily understood and usable the next day in the clinic.

Dr. Reiman is an international expert and has published extensively on hip examination and intervention. He has been involved in reporting on these interventions, both surgical and non-surgical. He continues to teach, research and practice clinically.
