BALL AND SOCKET JOINTS
AN EVIDENCE AND PRINCIPLE-BASED APPROACH TO MANAGEMENT
This one day course is divided into two halves, with one half providing an overview of our recent hip research, combined with the current evidence-base to produce rehabilitation strategies to guide the private practitioner when managing patients with hip pathology. The second half will provide practitioners with a principle-based approach to the early rehabilitation of shoulder conditions, based on our shoulder research and clinical expertise. As well as providing a greater understanding of the consideration for management of later stage, high level shoulder rehabilitation.
By the end of the course, participants will;
- Understand hip muscle function in healthy individuals, with a particular focus on the deep hip muscles (gluteus medius, gluteus minimus, quadratus femoris, iliocapsularis and the obturators).
- Understand the hip muscle structure and function in injury and pathology, with a particular focus on osteoarthritis, gluteal trochanteric pain syndrome and femoroacetabular impingement.
- Practice effective exercises for targeted rehabilitation of hip disorders and appreciate the evidence-base behind the development of the exercise protocols.
- Apply clinically relevant, principle-based management techniques to treat patients with shoulder disorders.
- Use practical shoulder assessment techniques to guide the direction, stage and progression of early shoulder rehabilitation.
- Apply clinically relevant management techniques for rehabilitating gym-related shoulder injuries.
- Understand and teach correct technique for gym exercises that place the shoulder at risk.

Who should attend this course?
This course is relevant to introductory, intermediate and advanced levels and new graduates. This course will provide attendees with robust, evidence-based strategies for the management of two of the most complex joints in the the body: The hip and shoulder. New knowledge and the confidence gained from undertaking the course will enhance patient care, improve outcomes, and increase patient and practitioner satisfaction.
